Our biggest show of the year starts Friday. These types of benches usually sell for us. 2 are poplar and the other is Hackberry. All are about 52” long, 32” tall and 22” deep. The last picture is of some of the curly pattern in the poplar.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Monte, you sue know how to show case the grain in those benches! Hope you drive home with an empty truck and a filled custom order book. Thanks for sharing.

Those are really beautiful. No wonder they sell so well. I’d buy a couple.

Great work Monte. How do you attach them? Screws or dowels, or something else I am missing.
