This bench-table was inspired by the benches seen in Japanese gardens. The solid base is connected by a gracefully arched stretcher and attached with mortise and tenons. The top is made of a solid cherry slab with mahogany ends that are again mortise and tenon joined. The effect is really beautiful.
The bench-table is 14" deep, 36" wide and 18" high. The legs are made form solid mahogany that is 1.75" thick. The finish is teak oil, hand-rubbed and the bottom of the legs are sealed with epoxy resin so moisture does not enter through the base. All of the surfaces are hand planed to give a special smoothness that you just don't see with regular sandpapered tops.
The piece is shipped fully assembled so you can unpack and enjoy. The piece can be used indoors or outdoors as a bench or an entry table, while lighter weight the structure is extremely solid.
