This is another reproduction (i.e. blatant copy) of an LJ project I saw when poking around. Thanks to anthm27 for the inspiration as well as the extra pics, sketch and advice he was so kind to give.

Bench is made of white oak with a couple of walnut stripes. Mortise and tenons everywhere except the long bottom rail which uses dowels. Finished with poly.

The legs at either end are at a 6 degree angle to each other, and the two leg assemblies tilt towards each other by the same ….so there are a lot of angles to work with, something I had not done before. An interesting challenge for me.

Thanks for looking.

Excellent Job Roy,
It truly looks supurb and a real thrill for me to see a re production of the original.

I see you got that camber in the long bottom rail that we talked about, a very nice detail.

Great job and I was only too happy to help with the sketch and dimensions.

Top Job

Kind Regards

Wow, that is a fine looking bench. Its amazing what a few degrees will do, to provide visual interest to a piece. And Anthony’s comment made me look more carefully at the photo to see that very fine camber.

Have your say...
