This is a bench/chair I made out of Purple heart Hardwood & Maple veneer, that I Yellow glued to two layers of 3/8” bending plywood. It’s a copy of Thos. Moser.

Wow!!! That has to be the one of the finest looking benches I’ve ever seen!! I love the modern look and the colors are beautiful. You’ve done an excellent job on this, are you going to keep it? I don’t think I’d let this out of my hands. Way to go!!

Thomas Moser is the first cabinet maker, joiner, that in the last 100 years,that truly improved the wheel, being a chair, through experssions of the american/euro/canadian ever expanding butt…..............and all the vector mechanics of wieght to leg ratios.

he makes a perfect chair, no matter what wieght bares down on it

I agree with all of the posts above. Great job! Pat, I am glad you asked about the purple heart, only wood to give me a rash, hopefully it did not bother Eric.

Wow that looks terrific.
To nice to cover up with the cushion, although that does make better to sit on.
Great job. You are a credit to the craft. I’m sure dad is beaming with pride. Keep up the great work.

Great job Eric! Looks good and it’s comfortable too. I won’t even tell you what my lame high school project was, or how much of it my Dad actually did. Your Dad teaches and then gets out of the way. You’re lucky to have such a patient and talented mentor.

Hi Douglas~~ Did you get to see the bench when it was completed? Eric did an amazing job and to have his dad as his teacher is a great way to begin a woodworking career.
