This is my wave bench that I designed. It is usually made with contrasting woods. It is coopered and the top is laminated on the sides to give it flare on the sides. I have laser engraved a few of them with a celtic knot on the front stretchers. They are very fun to make and have a lot of different elements that make them a very challenging project. I like to add the socks on the legs with the accent wood. I have made them out of variuos species of wood, walnut, maple, myrtlewood. They are perfect for putting at the end of the bed. I have had many musicians buy them for performances. Definitely one of my signature pieces.

It’s a very nice piece and one thing is for sure. It makes a fine conversation piece and a comfortable ‘stool’ to sit on. I like it for sure.
