Hi Folks

This is bench I made for my wife for Xmas of 2009. Its based on a Skills Canada design.

The center piece on the front of the bench is a piece of carved mahogany from an old organ that I found in
pieces. The hand craved dovetails were tricky to say the least!

Any questions or comments would be appreciated.

Thank You

Absolutely Gorgeous! What more can be said than that other than when I look at it I feel humbled by and jealous of your woodworking skills.

It would have been just as lovely without the dovetails, but they sure catch one’s eye…a very interesting design element
