Here is a Oak bench the customer wanted to have made @ 24" high
and stable so the Grandkids wouldn't be able to turn it over.
 This bench was a fun one to do, though it did consume quit a bit of 
2" oak.  I cut a tenon with shoulders on each end of the leg support spreader and then as it fits through the mortise on the legs theres room for the wedge to be taped in and tighten things up.
The bench was completed with a nice stain and then a lacquer clear coat applied.
Dont forget to click on the photo to enlarge.

Here is a project I got into months ago, where the customer had acquired
a slab of Camphor wood that they wanted to use a coffee table.
They needed some sort of leg support to work with the shape of the slab.
The customer came with a sort of crude 2x4 design and I took it from there.
I used small cedar logs and cut a full 2 x 4,s from them but left one side natural.
All was sanded smooth and a nice lacquer finish applied
In short here is the finished project.
