Okay, I tried to modify my original post to include more info, but obviously that did not work, so....
The front of this bench, underneath the seat has short pieces that I cut and attached. They are more pieces of the head board that I used for the back rest, picture frames, door moldings, shutter frames and broom sticks.
I have never taken an art class or any wood building classes.
I have been building pieces like this for around 2- 2 !/2 years.
