Built entirely from hard maple and walnut. Joinery is the key to overall aesthetic as well as the strength of bench. The marraige of contemporary design and traditional woodworking techniques is fundamental in the work that I do. I am able to acheive light and airy work only by means of the strength afforded with traditional methods.
Inspiration for this piece comes entirely from walnut seat. For half a year it sat on a bucket as I studied it’s curves and tried to get a sense of how to showcase this gorgeous piece dug up at a local sawmill years ago. This has to be one of my favorite builds.
