The design comes from MATTHEW TEAGUE (FineWoodworking Magazine (JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2001) Light Settee in Cherry).
Made it with Brazilian Canela. For the seat I used a synthetic fiber. Finished with Tung Oil.

That is just simply beautiful. Clean simple lines and the weave is incredible. I’d be proud to have one of these in my home for sure.

getting the weaving tight and well done is quite a skill, and the bench is nicely crafted. Enjoy your new bench!

I like classic, not complicated design. Nice joinery too.
