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. 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 $230
4 ft long, with overall 18" height, bench is $260
At 5 ft long, with overall 18" height, bench is $290

Wood varies with each piece. But there is a commonality of tone and figure and patina. Smoother surface shown in photo 1. Rougher surface shown in photos 2 thru 5. Let me know your preference.

All birdloft reclaimed materials are sustainably harvested in a big-hearted, biodiesel-breathing compact pickup truck. For biodiesel nuts, please note, the biodiesel is 100 percent recycled. This is just one aspect of our ongoing efforts to be awesome. More trumpeting can be had at http://www.birdloft.com/ethos.php

birdloft prides itself on its exceptional craft. Every piece is made with meticulous attention to detail and knowledge of how wood moves and breathes. You may find a less expensive piece in a similar style, but it won't be built to the same level of perfection.
