Not sure if they call these "English" garden benches in England?
Most of the work was done on the CNC, contouring the legs, cutting mortises, etc.
One of the great things about CNC is that there is very little, if any, guess work. This project came from WoodSmith No. 45. Fitting the arms to the legs was described as a fairly complicated procedures, but with CNC, the parts are just laid out and things fit, the first time.
A really handy feature in Aspire is the "dogbone" fillets. Makes fitting up mortise and tenons much, much easier.
The bench is built from pressure treated southern yellow pine, the legs are a glue up rather than a 4 X 4 post. The picture was taken after the primer coat was applied. Eventually it will be painted a medium blue color.
Ahhh, the most important part! I was paid exactly one German Chocolate cake complete with coconut/pecan frosting for this effort. It don't get much better than that!
