This walnut Shaker bench is handmade to order in Virginia by a single person with hand tools and traditional joinery. It's perfect for entryways, dining rooms, gallery spaces and weddings.

It’s delivered or shipped via freight. Pick-up is also available.

I also make the bench in cherry, quartersawn white oak, sapele-mahogany and, if available, highly figured quartersawn sycamore. Please message me for photos of these woods. The length shown is 8 feet. Longer and shorter versions are available, as well.

Intricate sliding, tapered dovetails connect the legs of the bench to the underside of the top. These complex joints take a day to cut, refine, and fit, but they’re worth the effort. Once assembled, they lock the bench components together, making the bench extremely rigid and keeping the top flat and straight.

This joinery is so strong it allows the bench to be made with thinner material. The model shown is 8 feet long, yet it weighs less than 40 pounds, an important consideration given that benches are often moved for cleaning or seating.

The bench is finished with a hard-wearing product from Europe made from plant oils and waxes. The finish is food- and child-safe. If it’s ever damaged, it is easy to repair.

Craft of the bench is guaranteed for the life of the original purchaser.
