ISLAND BARN WHALE BENCH, with adjustable hairpin legs

Reclaimed roughsawn old growth wood bench with mid century modern adjustable hairpin legs.

Whale bench because something of the sea has taken root.
Island barn because the old barns of Puget Sound are where much of our wood comes from.

Douglas fir plank smoothed for function while preserving the roughsawn texture and deepened wood tone from years doing work just out of the elements, rain and salt air, brief intermissions of sun. Traces of the sawmill blade and patina intact. Benchtop is sealed with teak oil.

Good for easy, quick leveling of legs on uneven floors. Hairpin legs are cold rolled steel rod with plate steel bases and anchor to the benchtop with three screws. Preserved with clear matte enamel.

bench is approximately 11-1/8" wide x 2 inches thick
overall bench height approximately 18"

bench is made to order and will be near equivalent in color, texture, patina and tone as shown in photos

At 3 ft long, with overall 18" height, bench is $275
4 ft long, with overall 18" height, bench is $300
At 5 ft long, with overall 18" height, bench is $345
