Piano Bench
Made this piano bench for my daughter who started taking lessons. The top and legs are made from reclaimed black locust from a bridge in Brooklyn. Tried something a little different to attach the legs. Used sliding dovetails instead of m&t.

Beautifully done!  The sliding dovetails look great. Don't know much about black locust - is that the natural color or stained?
Corelz - nice bench.  Locust was used before PT lumber.  very rot resistant.

A very clean looking design, and the sliding dovetails came out great, Well done.

Great looking bench, Danny!!!. Sliding dovetails are a cool way to go. I like variety in construction , too!...........Cheers,, Jim
Nice, I've never done it.  
Did you cut some of the bottom of the tenon off so the shoulder could cover the mortise?
Looks like a good, long lasting, bench.

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Love the sliding dovetails. Super functional but still old world elegant. 

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Very nice bench, Corelz! Looks like you’re now an expert on sliding dovetail legs. ;-)
Great looking bench, solid and sturdy looking also. Excellent job !!!   Mike
Thats the natural color BB. The finish I think was satin wipe on poly. 
Jim you had some input on the design of this one. 
Yes Bently I cut a little off of the dovetail to cover the socket. 
Dave every time making sliding dovetails is a new adventure.
