Chu Bench & Stool
This cherry bench was originally designed and built as a wedding gift
for my sister-in-law and her husband. I've since made a few additional
ones of varying lengths. The stool is made from stock leftover from the
benches and follows the same assembly methods.
The seat planks are angled inward toward a the center stretcher that
forms the spine of the bench. This provides a gently contoured seat for
comfort. (The tops of the stool are flat however.) The legs clamp the
stretcher between them and support the ends of the planks.
