Hello old friends – back to the bench

With the days getting shorter I am glad the backyard is nearly done (for the year).  This evening I cleared my workbench of irrigation tools and supplies and resumed work on the dining table bench.

I chopped out the mortices for two pairs of split tenons.

Raised Planter – done

This weekend I finally finished the raised planter.  It took a while but I finally got that hang of these joints.

After a few coats of deck stain all that remains is a bit of irrigation and then planting.

I can finally get back to the bench.
