this is a corner couch i made for a couple from volcano,ca last year . it was made from honduras mahogany and had to be able to be kocked down to be able to fit into the small door way . it was finished with a linseed oil and bees wax mixture about 7 coats, it took about three weeks to make and finish. thank’s for all the great comments—michaeljon

This is a very nice piece of furniture. I can understand why it need to be knocked down to fit into the house. Did you do the cushions as well?

By the way the piece appears to match the window trim quite well.

Thanks for sharing.

it looks very nice. I was wondering what you used for the flooring of the furniture. You didn’t just keep it open did you? I would think the cushions would fall through. Thanks.

Excellent looking piece – looks like we have another fan of pocket hole joinery (works for me)?

How did you do the cushions? I’m thinking of doing a smaller version of that settee for my niece’s room, and the only thing scaring me is the upolstery!
