Carved Bench seat

This is my latest project. The bench is made from Yakault and Ipil. Both timbers are recycled from old buildings. The seats and backs are carved from 55 mm thick stock. The arm rest supports are steam bent Ipil. Each leg has a slider made from Ebony. There are only 12 screws used in the project and these hold the seat to the frame. This was to allow for easier finishing. The finish is lacquer with 3 wax coats to finish.

Very nice! I would love to see more photos. In particular, how the back and the seats are connected.

That’s way cool. I envy you who can carve. Would you mind posting a close up photo of wood on the seats and seat backs?
