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.
