Project Description

This is our standard bench offering. It has changed slightly over the years and has evolved into what you see here. The seating surface is glued together from heavy reclaimed wood framing timbers forming a solid slab. The legs are fused to the bottom of the seat using double mortise and tenon joints.

A new addition is the cross brace tying the legs together. This provides an extra layer of stability to an already sturdy bench and adds some refinement to the aesthetic.

The bench pictured here was built with reclaimed framing lumber from the 1940’s – 1950’s. I believe it is western hemlock. Judging from the straight and tight grain I would say that it is definitely virgin timber lumber from the Pacific Northwest.
