THIS IS MY LATEST PROJECT, A “GOSSIP BENCH”.
IT IS MADE OF SOLID OAK WITH AN AROMATIC CEDAR BOTTOM IN THE MAIN STOAGE AREA.

THE DRAWERS ARE CEDAR LINED AND HAVE JEWELRY HOLDERS IN THEM.
IT IS BUILT WITH ALL RECYCLED WOOD AND PIECES THAT HAVE BEEN STASHED AWAY IN THE SHOP WAITING FOR A PROJECT LIKE THIS.

FINISH IS MINWAX STAIN AND DEFT SPRAY LACQUER.

Very nice bench. Interesting combination with the jewelry holder. What was the inspiration?

Very nice piece, very creative. Did you do the turnings yourself, or were they purchased for the project? I really like the design.

the heart is a wonderful addition to this piece.

I like it!
It’s a good mix of lathe and conventional tools in action on one piece.
I’m not a big fan of oak due to the grain restrictions during finishing but you did an excellent job of matching your up.

Is there a plan?
How many hours?

Ray: A great bench and I guess we could say a great conversation piece.

Nice job.

Really neat idea, Ray. No, Deb, for you girls we want no padding. If the seat is really rough you won’t spend so much time on the telephone.
