Black Walnut Burl
Bench
A Beautiful piece to look at & Comfortable enough to sit on for hours.
I created this piece using a 1.5" thick Black Walnut Slab for the seat, The back is a 7/8" thick walnut slab as well. The supports are Hickory & are 2" thick.
Over all piece measures 62" long & stands 33" tall. The seat is 15.5 high &18 to 14" deep & the back rising 15 to 19" above the seat.
This piece can be seen on my site http://www.around-the-bend.com & in my ebay store at: http://stores.ebay.com/Around-The-Bend-Woodworks

That's not even close to being a piece of furniture------- it is truly a work of fine art. As pretty a bench as I've ever seen. Would love to have that in my entry. Guess it's time to go looking for a nice walnut tree. Thanks for sharing.
