One of the outside salesmen brought me some 1-3/4×16” Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) and I made this bench for my Engineered Sales Rep who has taught me A Lot about sizing Beams and Joist for residential buildings. The mitered corner is glued and held in place by 3 – 3/8” dowels perpendicular to the joint on each side.
BWT I’m old enough to be my rep’s father, but he is One Smart Guy.

Nice looking bench. I’ve got some LVL pieces lying around and this would be a good use for them.

Peter, I cut my joints with a skill saw! a 12” radial arm would most probably make life easier.
