I made these solid cedar wagon wheel bench seats for a local restaurant. Still going strong after several years.

That has to be rewarding to see your benches every time you visit the restaurant.
Even more so if someone happens to be sitting on them.
Well done.

Very interesting design and construction.

I would have one comment on the configuration. The back and seat appear to be at 90 degrees; most chairs have about 100 degrees or a 10 degree slant back from vertical. That would improve the comfort and ergonomics of the bench a lot.

I attached several pieces together and ran it through the bandsaw. Wasn’t easy and needed ALOT of sanding but it turned our great.

I was going to but the customer wanted it that way. I would have added an angle too. ;)
