Jensen built the bench for an article in FWW #198 and incorporated elements from Gary Rogowski’s Asian-style bed from Home Furniture #8. Mortise and tenon joints and marine epoxy hold the sturdy piece together. In total, Jensen needed to cut 40 mortises of four different lengths. To simplify the process he used a router and two simple jigs. The bench is unfinished except for epoxy on the ends of the legs to make sure no water wicks into the end grain.
