A double captain’s seat bench, console table, and five leg support system.
80 inches long, all Juniper, studded with Arizona Copper slag filling in a few choice cracks and knots.
It was a joy crafting this piece! Wish it was for me.

Interesting, well done. Great workmanship in the design and finish. Beautiful piece of furniture.

I like this, especially the subtle inlay. I’ve got the lumber to make one, just got a few more projects to finish up before I get started.

I had a message asking how the arm rest / table top was mounted. Here’s how…...

Wow! I know that once I sat down on this, you would have a hard time getting me to move! It just looks so touchable and warm to the hand!

Great bench. You have taken advantage of the natural shape of the wood pieces to great effect to craft a wonderful looking bench.

A fantastic piece. This is the kind of project that just makes me wanna do something even better in my work….and looking at this bench, that would be a tall order to fill. The joinery and shaping/sculpting you did on this is just magnificent. A definite head-turner for sure. Great job.
