That’s a Chippendale design it’s a little tricky to half lap the cedar to get the design. Looking at your home page it looks like you have many interest plus police work must be hectic at times.

Very nice. Is this your design, a refurbish, or plans? My wife would love that. I’ll be refurbing two benches later this year. Nothing facy like your bench.
