Live Edge Spaulted Maple With Walnut Bowties Bench

The bench is 4' long and 18" tall. The width varies due to the live edge. This was taken from a single board to make the seat and both legs, Due to the splits in the wood, walnut bowties were inserted to create a unique look and to support and strengthen the lumber. I then inserted 6, 6" walnut dowels into the ends to create even more strength through the legs.

The tree that this came from was taken down about 3 years ago due to encroaching on a home. The homeowner had the tree removed and instead of cutting it up for firewood, he had it cut and milled into lumber. I'm proud to take ownership of the good lumber and turn it into something that you can use and cherish for years to come.

    I love the bench I custom ordered with Aaron Matheson. I had only a previous image of a completed bench to go off of when custom ordering the one Matheson Woodwork completed for me. Aaron was communicative through the whole process and sent photos of the wood selection prior to making the bench to ensure I was still interested. I am a very happy customer and would recommend his services.
