Comments

The long, rectangular bench has a rectangular seat with rails below that are canted at the ends.  Upright supports or end boards support the seat board and affixed with double tenons, each wedged firmly in place.  The end boards are dramatically shaped with deep ogee curves and have a half-round cut-out at the bottom to form two feet.  Both sides of the bench are identical.
