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.
