I designed my Waltham line of chairs and benches to be something that could have been made by a farmer. All of the spindles and legs are shaved on the shaving horse rather than turned on a lathe. Fancy furniture would have intricate turnings for legs, stretchers and some spindles. Any farmer would have had the tools to make this bench.
Enjoy the dry weather,
