This is a Table and four benches built from Red Oak and featuring a “Rough Cut” Surface.
This is the second commission from this family utilizing the rough cut lumber design. The first commission was for a simple four posted table and two benches.
The design features the buzz saw marks left from the original milling of the lumber.
The wood (oak)was supplied by the client who expressly required the buzz saw marks to be left on the working surfaces where ever possible.
The Bench design features a sturdy “I beam” that is attached via mortise and tenon into double faced leg brackets.
The Trestle table has breadboard ends, two lower stretchers and one upper stretcher.
This set now “lives” in a cottage in Georgian Bay, Canada.
