Cedar Storage bench

Hi, First time posting a project on the forums here. This is my 3rd woodworking project I've done and it came out pretty good. It's a storage bench/seat made out of Western Red Cedar, mortise and tendon joinery, and finished with boiled lindseed oil. The project was based off of plans from a Wood magazine back in 2003 (I believe).

That is a beautiful bench with some handy storage. It looks right at home next to that rocked up wall. Welcome to the forum by the way!

Wow - 3rd project! I wish I had your skill. That looks amazing. Looks like it has a lot of very well-fitting joints in it.

Thank you for the kind remarks. :)
@DrillBit....well, the joints were a first for me and there were some issues but nothing that wasn't 'fixable'. lol
For the plan...http://www.megaupload.com/?d=P53V5C07

Hey Drew, I couldn't get the megaupload link to work that you posted earlier in the thread.

Would you be able to send me those plans? A shoe storage bench next to our front door is my next project and I have been searching for the right style. This one looks perfect.

You can send it to mtmartinassociates at gmail dot com.

THANKS!!
