Very nice, please send me one.Well, based on @jeremy_norbury detailed plans (a huge THANK YOU Jerry!), I have just finished my first bench.
The wood is Cumaru, a Brazilian tree as hard as Ipê, but not so dark in color.
Very heavy, believe me. It will last many, many years for sure, it came out very sturdy.
It is missing the last coat of wood protector, but I am proud of the results so I'm showing it anyway.

I overwintered these in an unheated garage with no light. They were exposed to many mid 20°F days and nights outside in early winter. They didn’t drop their leaves for over a month after I put them in an unheated garage with no light. I didn’t cut a few off shoots to see how different the new leaf buds would be in the spring. (smaller or larger)This is my second year in bonsai, but I’ve been gardening for over 25 years. I have 30+ rose bushes, 30+ hydrangeas, and too many other plants and vegetables to name. I’m currently experimenting with air layering and I’m going to chop the S shaped Chinese elm on the left. I’m heading to a nursery in Dayton Ohio this weekend to look for a nice maple. They’ve been in business for 60 years and have over 800 bonsai. I’ll probably end up dropping some serious coin. I’m also sealing these tables this weekend.
