Live edge, seasoned, solid oak bench, approximately 96cm long, 26cm wide and 42cm high. The seat width is approximately 25cm but varies due to the natural shape.
The bench in the photos has now sold but I can make more to order, including bespoke sizes. Timescale is typically 4 weeks but please get in touch to confirm before placing an order. The bench is also available in Solid Ash.
Milled as ‘through cut’ rather than commercial standard ‘quarter cut’ allows live edges to be retained on both sides of the seat. The live edge seat is supported on simple, elegant, tapered legs and assembled using traditional hand cut joints. These joints can be expressed as per the photos (wedged / pinned tenons and dovetail halving joints) or concealed mortice and tenon joints.
Through tenons at the top of each leg are diagonally wedged with ash to contrast with oak seat. Similarly, the through tenons towards the base of each leg are pinned with a small, purpose made, ash dowel. A dovetail halving joint at each end of the central stretcher prevents the pairs of legs spreading.
The bench has been finely sanded and finished with matt, hard wax.
Every item has a makers mark and unique tally style number on the base. The makers mark is an abstract axe approximately 2cm long.
