My mom had a request (who could refuse) she wanted a little bench for her hallway where she can set shopping bags or change her shoes. Dad sent the dimensions and I searched LJ’s for some inspiration. I found a bench that fellow LJ Chris Cunanan posted. I liked the lines of the Asian bench and just glued up some boards and got to work.
The bench is made from Ash. The legs are three 3/4 boards planed and glued. The top is four boards edge glued. Joints are M&T. All put together it is pretty hefty. The legs were shaped on the band saw and finished with a hand scraper, top was run through the drum sander and hand scraped then lightly sanded with 320 grit. The finish has four coats of hand rubbed varnish.
