-- Retirement is not as easy as I thought it would be

Mike,and Lanwater top is about 2 1/4",legs are attached with 4 loose tenons per leg,I could have made butterflies smaller but at the time they seamed to be ok,the one one the right I was trying to fix a mistake by a slip of the router.

That’s a nice bench.
I have never used slab yet; I was wondering if smaller butterflies could have been used and yet stabilized the crack. The ones on the right king of break the symmetry.

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

Thanks!

Good.

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.
