Rustic Book-Matched Spalted Pecan Bench
This is a commission off my website. It is a 60 inch bench utilizing two bookmatched pecan slabs 2 inches thick with spalting in the sapwood but leaving half the pink heartwood in. Natural edge on both sides.
Legs are from native cedar or Juniper Ashe, that are hand-traced and hand mortised one inch deep into seat, Titebond 2 backed up with 2.5 inch Kreg screws.
