Building a Bench – Japanese Style – Woodworking

Building a Bench - Japanese Style - Woodworking
In this project I design and build a bench incorporating Japanese style architecture, as well as in lay some bow ties/butterflies along a crack I carve as a decorative feature.

Depending on how you argue the semantics of what joinery is, their are 5 or 6 different types of joinery in this project.

Here are some of the tools I used to build this project. (Affiliate Links)
