I haven't made anything but stuff for around the house over the last couple months except this country bench. I finished it up yesterday. Thanks alot to my daughter Valerie for painting the black part of the bench . . . she is a very neat painter and does a good job. I still need to put a sealer on it, but other than that it is done. The scene I painted on the back isn't as light as it appears in the photo . . . that is the best shot I could get of the bench with my camera. At least you can kind of get the idea of what it looks like from the picture. I don't care if this bench sells right away or not . . . I had fun making it and that is what counts, having fun doing it. I am presently working on a round lamp table and will post that as soon as I get it finished.
