Rose Bench

Rose Bench

A friend of mine and I have been talking about this project for years. She needed a bench for her dining area that separates it from the rest of her living space. Defining the space. We worked with many many versions of the design. Originally it had a bookshelf/wine rack built into the back side and… it was way too busy and if she ever moved it could never be pushed against a wall or something so ultimately we came up with this bench to cover the bench par, and some time later we’ll make a hall table type thing for the wine rack part of the plan.
Just before her birthday this year, I contacted her mother and sisters and asked them to finance the material for this thing. We’d procrastinated building it for too long.
I’m a fan. I got guidance from Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson) himself for the finish used. Which is teak oil. its a nice muted finish that makes the walnut jump right out at you.
