Fit’s like a glove!!! This bench was custom made to fit an irregular curved area around the curved stairway in the entryway. The contour of the bench follows the curve of the wall exactly. The bench is made from solid maple wood throughout the entire piece. It features a true curved front and back apron as well as custom maple traditional legs. The dark dye color really makes the bench stand out and invites you over to have a seat!!! There is no better place to sit and take your shoes off after a hard day’s work!!

Great thing you managed to follow wall line and second, very impressive you’ve made it of one piece of board.
