Built a bench for the wife. A bit of a different style then I would have chosen, but I guess it isn’t all about me. All cherry, hand turned every spindle and leg, based it off of a picture on one my wife found online.

Well, you’re an old hand at these benches and chairs. No wonder it looks so good…

Another beauty to add to your collection…very cool…

Thanks. A couple of years ago I would never have even considered building a chair. When I saw my first Maloof rocker I new I had to make one. Since then it seems like that’s all I do.

Very nicely done, great job. Some day I have to build a chair or bench. It does remind me of a bench my grandparents had.
