Classic rustic bench l finished last night. It has hand cut mortise and tenons, home made stain, cove trim shaped on my table saw and square nails for a final touch. I also added a lot of blocking so it should last a lifetime.

Most people do not comprehend how hard it is to make nice wood look old.

Is this actually old wood or is it big boix lumber?
