Wiskerface Chesapeake Bench

This Chesapeake Bench was my first large project. The photo is not as good as I would like but I hope to add better ones at a later time.

It took about 2 weeks of and on to do it and is very sturdy. The brass hardware is there for 2 reasons 1) it takes the viewers eyes away from some of the errors and it compensates for were I misplaced a couple Pocket Screws which caused a portion of wood to come apart. As I was near the completion and weather was a factor to get it done (I don't have room in my house to paint large projects)
