This is a bench I made for a customer who wants six of them to place around his business. I wanted to stay with a simple design and also make it very sturdy. It’s made from red oak. Thanks for looking at it.

That is a very nice looking bench. I like the clean lines and the whole design. I think I need to make two for my shop and add bottoms on the stretchers you used for some handy storage. These would be great for low stands to work on cabinets and for show when customers come by. Thanks Eric. Well done.
