This is a copy of the Hall bench published in Woodsmith Magazine Vol 29/No.172 with some subtle changes. The material is Finish White Oak – This is quite a rare wood to get some appreciable size boards.
The customer provided me with the whole tree, which was felled in 2005 to make way for his new house, the tree was milled in May of this year and has been air drying in my shop since then.
The Hall stand is made entirely from solid wood, there is no ply or MDF panels like the original, the main panels are resawn and sequence matched to provide continuity. It measures 1800mm high, 985mm wide and 457mm deep. The finish is Polyx oil (3 coats) and Fiddes wax. The fittings are all solid brass.
