Craftsman Style Bench

This is a project I did a little bit ago. A Craftsman Style bench for a client who lived in the early 1900s built a craftsman-style house in Denver, Colorado.  She wanted a piece of furniture that would complement the architecture of her home.  I found some period correct quarter round rope molding the trim out the panels.  When delivered, it looked like it was built for the house and had been there for the last 100+ years—a perfect companion.

The bench is made from white oak with a golden oak stain to match the woodwork in their entryway. 

Sizes are approximate

19″ tall
60″ wide
20″ deep

If you are interested in seeing how it was built. 




Thanks, Brian Benham
And Thanks to Denver, Colorado, for providing such awesome architecture of old buildings 

A beautiful piece Brian, well crafted and the rope molding is a great accent. The grains look good along with the finish. Well done. Would be nice to see a photo of where it is sitting in the old house.

That looks perfect! At 60" wide that is a large bench but you got the proportions balanced.
