Asian Inspired Bench Finished

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

I finished my bench with a couple of coats of BLO. The bench will live on our front porch which is covered from direct rain, but it will receive wind blown rain; the BLO should provide adequate protection.

I am working on editing part 4 (finale) of the build series and I should have it ready in a few days.



Bench Progress

Friday, July 8th, 2016

I completed the third of three glue-ups for my Asian inspired bench. All that remains is plenty of glue clean up and a few minor details to finish.

Soon I’ll be drinking a frosty beverage while relaxing on the bench.

I’ll be publishing the final build video in a week or so.


Almost There

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

I am rapidly approaching the end of this build. Over the weekend I completed two of the three subassemblies which only leaves the crest rail, back splats, and seat slats to be assembled. In the photo below, the crest rail (which still needs to be shaped) is only there to aide in spacing the lower rail for the back splats. I plan on releasing a video in the next couple of days of my progress so far (Part 3). The final video (Part 4) should follow a couple weeks after Part 3.

Almost there.
