Nice job WB! Do you have one of those tenon attachments for your power drill?

Thanks guys, I have been using a logman tenon maker. The legs are made of cedar too. Just didn’t skin’em down to the purplewood. I will have one of those deals for my drill soon. The logman tenon maker works good, it’s just not fast enough. I have a friend that has a tennon cutter for his drill and he can do 10 in the same time it takes me to do 4.

Hi All, it’s been a spell since I’ve been here. This is the bench after two years in the raw out in the yard. I finally got a finish on it. Got a table to match it too. What ya think??

The bench is going to be in the shade, so I just used polyurathane. I kinda wish I would have used an oil finish on it. That way it would regain it’s natural look from time to time.
