I certainly took my time finishing this project, but it’s finally complete. I got my hands on a piece of dark green marble that was from the soda counter in my grandfather’s pharmacy. I decided to make a bench out of it to put in my foyer so that people have a place to sit while taking off and putting on their shoes.
The bench design is inspired by this Bancroft Bench (also picture #6 above). Most of the material is spalted maple, with a few strips of walnut in the top panels. I used a wiping varnish with a buffed wax finish. This is my first furniture project done almost entirely in my own workshop.
I also have some process pictures in my Picassa album for those interested:
Thanks for looking!
