Here is pictures of the bowling ally bench. It’s made with 3/4” plywood, pocket hole joinery. I made it for my daughter and her husband. I got a piece of a 1950’s bowling alley at a wood show. My son In law was an avid bowler growing up, so I got it in honor of him. One side looked pretty bad so I sliced a piece of maple and glued it on the end and stained it to match. Sanded it with 320 and it’s as smooth as butter. 2 coats of clear polycrilic

Very nice piece. You did a great job with the router jig to plane the surface. I have plans to try that myself.
