Walnut Slab Bench

Pictured below is a walnut slab bench that is meant to accompany the headboard-chest bed, also of black walnut.

A detail of the joinery – bridle joints join the legs to the aprons and are pegged, and the stretchers are joined to the aprons with sliding dovetails.

  1. Hi Jack,
    Just happened across your blog via the spectacular Village Carpenter & I really like your style.
    The contrast of the natural edged top to the starkly geometric frame of this bench is right up my alley.
    I like your turned work too.
    Keeping on making those shavings…
