I needed a bench for the bed I had just completed, since I had run out of spaulted Maple I decided to go with a piece of parallam. The frame is all maple, glued and screwed and then plugged and it has a live edge on the lower portion I think I will look around for some more spaulted wood and then make another with a parallam top and heavy spaulted base. There is something about parallam that I like!

Interesting piece. Well done.

I think I know my woods quite well. Then I saw your reference to “parallam” and I confess, I had never heard of that wood. Also, I had never seen anything that looked like what I see in the pictures.

A quick google search and now I realize that parallum is a manufactured product. As an FYI – I have turned a product called “timberstrand”. It’s neat looking but is VERY hard on your cutting tools.

Interesting, and a good looking frame.
don’t leave it out in the weather it won’t last.
If I remember correctlly Parallam is not quite as hard as timberstrand
