Whelp, it seems like its been over 2 years since I last posted any of my projects. Not because haven’t been building , quite the opposite actually. The business has really taken off and have been building piece after piece for over 2 years now with no break in between.
I guess I’ll start out with this one, as I am very proud of it. It’s 10’ diameter, seats 8 comfortably 10-11if you cram them in. Solid walnut and cherry back slats. None of this was bent, but rather cut out of solid pieces. All I had in mind when I started was the seat design, then the rest followed. I had about 1.5 solid weeks designing, full-scale drawing, mock ups, and templates, then about 6-7 weeks of build time. It is much more comfortable then it looks.
The bench was made in 3 sections, then Joined on site. It went together very easily, much easier then I thought. It took about 15 minutes in all for install.
I also made the 2 end tables and coffee table in the middle. The bench is obviously the focal piece, but I wanted to show the final product for the area. I also made him a dinning room table with 12 chairs that I will post later. Questions and comments or welcome.
