This is made form walnut that was sawn in 1968. A man my Dad knew was cleaning his barn out and found it. He had let a nephew store it there and everyone forgot about it. This thing is heavy and surprisingly comfortable.

Looks good. I think you are stretching the truth about the “surprisingly comfortable” thing. More like acceptably comfortable to quickly put on or remove shoes. I sure like the story behind the forgotten walnut. What a cool find.
Well done.

Very nice Hall Tree. Could you share how you joined the sides and front to the legs or uprights in back?

All of the major stress points in the frames are doweled and pocket screwed. Lower stress points were glued and screwed. I am working on a design similar in my head that will use tenons and pegs. There will be no screws except in the hardware.
