Here's my first completed project of the season. A Mission style bench made as a wedding gift for a good friend. They sent a pic and I basically tried to reconstruct what I saw, plus a couple of "liberties" here and there. It's mostly red oak but there are some pieces of "Widmer wine vat" QSWO interspersed. There are 36 blind M&T joints...the "thru" tenons are a faux finials. The 6 pegs are handcut from Sapele. Finish is mix of Minwax Early American and Golden Oak stain, and Behr's tung oil finish (which is a poly/tung oil mix). It's about 36"w x 15"d overall.
Their original plan was to add a custom made cushion but they weren't 100% positive during the early discussions, and they haven't seen the end result yet....decision pending on that aspect. My vote goes for no cushion but I dount I'll get a vote!
