These projects were custom made for a co-worker and friend. Four weeks ago we made the trip to Bennets sawmill and picked up 350 BF of beautiful walnut, some of the boards were over 15 inches wide in 5/4.The design is our version of arts and crafts including copper punched tin door panels, pyramid nails and walnut pegged joinery throughout. Construction is mortise and tenon case assembly, grooved frame and panel ends and back panel, shipped lapped solid walnut back with beaded edge at joint lines. The bench is a small version of dining table sized to fit betwen legs of table.The finish is generaly what I use on all projects, ngr dye stain, washcoat, wiping stain and three topcoats, just adjusting color of dye stain and wipe stain to achieve desired results. This finishing schedule produces good depth and clarity.
