I designed this corner bench and banister for the Studio loft of a dear friend and fellow artist. She wanted a corner bench that people could sit on after a hearty meal and also serve as a rail of some sort. The seat is made from 1-1/2” x 3” molave and dowelled through and through with iron wood rods. The three legs 7” in diameter are also made from Iron wood and rests on Saplungan discs which are then bolted onto the floor. The piece is signed and dated. I also did the bannister for their cantilevered stairs. I gifted her with the easel for her art works (painting) which I totally admire and love!

All woods used in this project are reclaimed from demolished houses as with all of my other furniture.

Wow Benji, I just love your work. The stair rail is beautiful as is the bench which you’ve made your own through detail and materials. Very nice work.

Top notch work there! Love the way the bench fits onto the space and the stairs are to die for. The hand rail looks great with the floating steps… Great work in a great space!
