The first Christmas Gift of the season is complete!!
This Shaker inspired entry bench is my interpretation of some of the other Shaker style benches seen on this site.
This version has of course the dovetailed drawer that measures 15” square and is nearly 12 inches deep and is made of hickory and rides on self closing drawer slides
There will be wicker baskets on each side of the drawer for shoes etc.
The remainder of the bench is made in solid cherry.
The finish is a wiped on coat of amber shellac followed by a light sanding with 220 grit sandpaper and followed by several coats of pre-catalyzed satin lacquer.
