Walnut Shaker Bench - Unfinished




My walnut Shaker bench is almost done. 

Here I am testing out the fit. It isn't glued up yet. Still need to soften the corners, smooth it, assemble, and apply a finish.

Of course, I post another photo when it is complete, I am just excited because it is built. The last 10% will probably take longer than I planned.

Very nice. I take it done with hand tools? Did you design it or work from a plan?

Yes John, all hand tools. It is from a plan in the December 2004 issue of Popular Woodworking. Here is a picture of their version, made of cherry: http://www.popularwoodworking.com/articleindex/shaker-inspired-bench
