This is a bedroom sitting bench in sapele. I pulled this design directly from Thomas Moser. I love his designs and construction, but just can’t afford it. Only differences here were that this was made from on piece of Sapele, and I opted out of making through tenons on the top rail, and back rails.
This was a great exercise in taking a basic line drawing and some photos and bringing it to life in 3 dimensions. I did some prototyping with poplar for the seat bevel angles as well as the curve and taper on the back rest, which is surprisingly comfortable.
