It’s my first couch and in fact is my second real furniture (the first is not ready yet haha) . It was a challenge for me because i had and old couch from my grandmother about 100 years old and I would like to make a copy from it using my band saw and my lathe for the first time. In the last photo I have the old and the new.

Looks beautiful. Is this a common Eastern European design? It has a lot in common with the Hungarian benches I looked at when I was making this bench:

bonobo, I don’t know if its common Eastern European design. This design as I know it’s an Aegean design and you can find it in the island of Greece, I guess as many other design you can find in Eastern European country. The common history of this area has create common design in many constructions.
