Roughsawn old growth slab bench salvaged from an island barn in the north Puget Sound. With mid century modern hairpin legs.
Whale bench because something of the sea has taken root.
Douglas fir plank planed smooth to interior while preserving the deepened tone of years doing work in the elements, absorbing rain and salt air with brief intermissions of sun. Traces of the sawmill blade and patina totally intact, only lightly cleaned, on edges and underside. Top is sealed with tung oil. Sides with beeswax.
Steel hairpin legs are professionally produced and have plate steel bases that anchor to the benchtop with three screws. Steel hairpin legs preserved with clear matte enamel.
