walnut benches in the works

For a Southern business that prides itself in unique, one of a kind pieces, the work around here for the past couple of weeks has gone against the grain.  We were between custom jobs and to see if we could get our labor costs down a bit, we made a dozen walnut benches.  Each is still quite unique;  Some with flowing grain, one with a dimensional joint holding a big crack together.  Some are 18" high for dining table use, other's shorter.  They are coming along quite nicely.  THe pic to the left shows the progress we made thru the end of the day Friday.  I'm thinking the construction of the benches might be complete Monday, or certinly Tuesday, then we can start the finishing process.  Walnut Benches
