    WIP - Hall bench (Nantucket Settle)

    Swmbo has me working on a NYW plan for a hall bench to replace a little maple one we have. Almost have the wood parts done. Today I should have the seat parts done. Seats parts tricky with beads, miters, rabbets

    Real shame you have to use that ugly ol' walnut for such a nice bench.

    That should finish out beautifully. Looking great so far.
