Here are some images of a bespoke commission I recently completed. It is a matching coffee table and bench for a local customer. The bench and table are made from 2" white oak and are really massive in proportions and weight; something that the customer wanted. They are joined with decorative through mortise and tenon joints that are wedged with a lighter native irish oak. For that extra touch of luxury the bench and table were hand planed and scraped before 5 coats of danish oil were aplied, resulting in a silky smooth and durable finish. These pieces will certainly last a lifetime.
