I made this bench for the lobby of the Fairfield Fire Training Center in Fairfield CT. The Maltese Cross and text were carved then burned with a torch for meaningful contrast. This one is solid Iroko, a Brazilian Hardwood similar to teak and finished with several coats of hand rubbed teak oil. This bench is customize-able in every way... size, species, style, finish, etc. Contact me directly with any questions. Arrives fully assembled and ready for use.
