Shaker bench

Shaker bench


The centrepiece of this two-seat, Shaker-style bench is a beautiful slab of spalted beech harvested barely a mile from where I live. Spalting describes the colouration and patterning created by the ingress of fungi into a tree. Left too long and it will result in full-scale rot; caught at just the right time and properly seasoned, the spalting imbues the timber with some remarkable character. This piece is particularly spectacular.

The other components of the bench are made of ash and finished with traditional black-over-red milk paint and oil.

These larger pieces are usually made to order unless I happen to have one in stock. Please contact me directly to check availability or to place an order. Note, the lead-time on orders is typically 6-8 weeks. Materials may differ from those shown.
