we delivered this fitted curved bench to a client’s house in northern vermont this pastweek … it was a multi step process that we initiated on a previous delivery … the client had sent a rough paper template with the radius of the stairs cu out … when we went up to deliver the hanging swing, (Lumber Jocks back in april), we took a cardboard template that we had cut on the cnc from that pattern and checked it on the site with the curve of the metal railing .. it looked good. once we had that pattern in our cad program, it was a simple matter to generate the rest of the curves we needed to cut the curved parts and assemble the framework. we built in it three pieces that were assembled on site at the top of the stairs on the third level. it was a cool project in a cool house, and the bench will be complete when the curved cushions arrive … more process photos in two posts on our dorset custom furniture blog .. happy 4th everyone … dan

Fantastic work and a legacy for years to come. I’m sure the home owners will enjoy it each time they pass it.
Well done.
