Reclaimed Wood Bench

This is a special bench I made using pieces of various species of reclaimed wood. There is walnut, cherry, oak, pine and birch plywood. I've always thought that the patterns of the different layers of plywood were really interesting, so I decided to highlight this in the bench.

The top slab is 25 x 11 inches wide and 2 inches thick. It stands 18" high. The base is made of poplar, stained with a dark walnut stain. Both the top and the base are finished with one coat of Tung oil and three hand-rubbed coats shellac for a hard, satiny finish.

This is a piece that makes you want to get close and touch it. The patterns of wood are just stunning. A great addition for your garden. Or even your living room.
