Now please explain! We all really live on the details, so please explain things like your choice of butterflies, the top’s thickness, your choice of leg configuration, etc.
That is one solid looking bench…. What did you use for a finish???
That’s a nice bench.

How is to top attached to the rest?
What finish did you use?
