Furniture Profile: Bench

Materials: These 2 (I now have only one left!)  ten foot long benches are built with reclaimed redwood for the seats and backs and reclaimed Douglas Fir for the arms/legs. Each bench has been treated and sealed with a soak of hot linseed oil and then 4 different treatments of tung oil after super fine sanding in between each rub (24 hour drying time between each rub). Finally, after the oil is thoroughly dry, I rub a beeswax wood finish onto the wood. These can be treated with an oil based outdoor finish upon request.

Design: The essential design strategy I wanted was to create a long expansive and comfortable stretch of seating while teasing out the beauty of the expanse of the boards. I did this by minimizing the visibility of central supports underneath the benches and not interrupting the seats and backs. However, as with all of my designs, I didn’t neglect the backside of the benches when it comes to how they look and feel. These benches could sit out from a wall and look great. They are super stable, solid and surprisingly slim agains a wall.
