Another Stellar Design
When Beth told me she was building a bench for her hubby, I didn't expect a gem like this! (I should have known better - she has NEVER disappointed me with the things she builds!)
What's even more incredible - she's been saving her scrap, in order to create the gorgeous slats on the top of the bench.
This piece reminds me of those Scandinavian designs, with slatted tops - and I just love her use of color and wood grain.
She used a combination of solid wood slats and laminated ones, and the effect is stunning.
The base is mortise and tenoned together - stable, durable, and will probably outlive all of us! There aren't too many pieces that I would put in my home - I'm too picky about what I want to live with! But this is one of the loveliest pieces I've seen in ages - and I couldn't be more proud of the woodworker that Beth is becoming.
She's probably taking orders, should you want want of her designs - let me know and I'll put you in touch with her!
