I made this bench to go with the cherry dining table I made, The raw slabs weren’t long enough so I milled 4 pieces, Finger jointed them and glued them together, Top coated with Stonecoat epoxy, Sanded progressively to 3,000 grit and polished for a honed semi gloss finish.

that’s pretty nice Michael – can’t tell about the legs, wood ? steel ? how thick is it ? It looks to be about 1 1/2”, if so what size is the finger joint bit ?

The legs are 1” x 3” steel painted black, I believe the bench came out a good 1 1/2” after I milled the wood, It’s 16” wide by 72” long.
