My first attempts at 5 board benches. Opening up a booth at an antique / craft mall and thought I would see if these could sell.

First picture is made with a piece of my 120+ year old barn wood as the seat. Rest of the bench and benches standard grade Pine for the M.

Borrowed / stole Charles Neil ideas from his video, credits to him.

Oh and my first try at Milk Paint also.

The top really sets it off. Hope you sell out.

Cool work on the benches. I really like the leg style.
