A pair of simple benches. I teach how to make these at TX/RX Labs and at the school where I work. Hand-cut joinery.

I like simple. It’s, well… simpler! :) These are really nice benches. To be honest, I would rather have these in my yard or garden (if I had a yard or garden) than anything ornate and demanding attention. I like the looks of these, a sort of Japanese Zen style. It’s nice of you to teach making these. I bet it’s a lot of fun too. Thanks for sharing! :)
