Friends:

I thought you all might enjoy this workout bench I made for my wife. It’s a sturdy piece and I got it done fast by turning round tenons on the lathe, fitting them into simple, drilled mortises and then wedging the joints for security. The whole thing was very fast to make and the wedged tenon requires no clamps, which makes the glue-up a breeze.

If you’re interested in the turned tenon method, I’ve got a video here:

I also have a blue-print style graphic I call a Tip Sheet. You can grab it for FREE here:

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share!

Um, it’s a workout bench. A back would kind of defeat the purpose.
