How to Make a Live Edge Walnut Bench

Easy Live Edge Woodworking Furniture!

This is one of those woodworking projects that didn't turn out as expected. I got this live edge slab of walnut from my local hardwood dealer and planned on making a hallway/entryway table out of it. The idea was to turn the legs on the lathe and use some reclaimed feet I found at a antique dealer. Once I got the feet attached I no longer liked the look of the table so I decided to turn it into a bench. Without the feet this turned out to be the perfect height for a sitting bench. I think it'll still go great in the hallway/entryway and be a great place to sit down and take off your shoes.

I'm using a set of MICROJIG MATCHFIT clamps in the above video. If you would like to win a free set of these use the entry form below for your chance to enter!
