A River Runs Through It

Made by Brian Penning

This bench is made starting from a single walnut board with a strip of maple marrying the two halves of the board back together. Maloof-style joinery connects the maple legs to the seat and no fasteners were used. A router template was made for the dish bit to follow the maple stripe. I finished this bench with Minwax Antique Oil with a little gloss marine varnish added. It took me approximately 40–50 hours to complete the piece.
