Carved Bench


This is my latest project. The bench is made from Yakault and Ipil. Both timbers are recycled from old buildings. The seats and backs are carved from 55 mm thick stock. The arm rest supports are steam bent Ipil. Each leg has a slider made from Ebony. There are only 12 screws used in the project and these hold the seat to the frame. This was to allow for easier finishing. The finish is lacquer with 3 wax coats to finish.

Design or Plan used: My own design
