“1750’s” Bench…………sold

This bench was made by Gary (with lots of help from Jim!) in the October Cottage wood shop.  The wood was reclaimed from a Newburyport house built in 1750, hand-planed, and assembled into a solid and functional piece.  Susan’s custom finish maintains the charm of the original wood while providing a uniquely smooth feel.  Benches of this type can be custom made to order in a variety of dimensions and with various leg details.  Look for upcoming projects with original 1750 square cut nails from the local blacksmith, reclaimed from the same source.
