Weekend distractions, part deux: a bench, and stuff

Continuing the tradition of the previous post, here's a perfectly good bench:

The legs are 8/4 hard maple, cut into 2.3" (6 cm) strips and then glued together. The top is 4/4 domestic walnut, with an additional strip glued to the bottom to make it look thicker (because gosh darn, walnut is expensive).

Cut on a bandsaw, joined together with a biscuit joiner + glue, then sanded, that's about it. Still applying finish (nitrocellulose lacquer from a rattle can), but this was the last moment when I could snap a photo (about to get dark) and it basically looks like the final product anyway. Pretty simple but turned out nice.

Several additional, smaller woodworking projects here.
