I built a halasana bench for my wife last year out of purpleheart and maple. OK for my first project hand cutting dovetails, but not good enough to post.
Yoga practitioners use these benches for various poses. I found out a colleague did yoga and gave her a pair of yoga blocks I had made. Through conversation I talked her into commissioning me to make her a bench, too. (Hey – I’m in sales!)
This is the bench I made for her. I had a local scroll-saw craftsman make the lotus flower cutouts for me. Small project but she’s happy. Happy client…happy woodworker, right?
Canary wood. Great slab, too. Wonderful colors. Red, purple, brown, yellow, gold. Magnificent.
