My most recent project is a red maple bench. My wife wanted a short bench that the kids could sit on and remove shoes, boots, etc. It is situated in our breakfast nook near the maple bar that I posted previously, and fits in well with the bar and butcher block countertops. I had different ideas on how to style the bench, but my wife sketched this design and I really liked it. Unfortunately for her she will likely be asked to be involved in the design process of future pieces now!
Initially I had a more minimalist design, but found the product somewhat unstable (at least for my destructo-children), so I added some visible and some hidden supports. The overall dimensions are 36” long x 14” deep x 18” high. It is finished with pure tung oil.
Thanks for looking!
