This “wee” live edge bench as Alba/Jamie would say and matching shelf are a commission job. The buyer saw my stuff on etsy and she wanted a tiny bench like my bigger bench. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, since it is only 17 inches high and 24 inches long and one board width wide (about 9-10 inches) but it turned out pretty cute. I hadn’t shipped the bench yet and then the woman asked me to build her a matching shelf with 4 pegs. These will go in her bathroom in Alberta Canada, so they are finished with spar poly. I found a nice board for the bench, and centered a natural bump out to the front. Then when I built the shelf, I found another board with a bump out, and centered that for the bottom board of the shelf so that the bench and shelf would match. Both pieces are made of wormy pine, naturally distressed. All joints are mortise/tenon no nails or screws I still have some finish work to do on both pieces but decided to post the pics today.
