These two benches were a commission from a customer that are used in a foyer outside an office area. First picture is of the completed benches with finish applied. The second picture shows the hardwood clip fasteners that I made, to allow for wood movement, to attach the seat the second shows how I connected the cross stretcher with a pocket screw on the bottom and then a screw threw the side stretcher into the cross stretcher and then plugged. 3rd 4th and 5th pictures are completed before finish was applied. Size is 16” deep, 18” tall and 48” long. The seat, and stretchers are all 1” material and the legs are a glue up that measures 2 1/4 square, with tapers on all four sides under the stretchers. Construction of the frame is mortise and tennon. Finish is a home brew Ploy wipe on.
