I adapted the look and feel of a 1930’s Morris Chair into the design of this bench. Although Morris Chairs are traditionally made from quartersawn oak, this bench is crafted from walnut. I used lighter colored maple accents in the feet, and in inlay lines in the front stretcher and along the back rail. The highlight is the fox and vine marquetry work on the back oval and along the stretcher.
The leather upholstery was superbly done by Wilbanks and Wolfrom of Warrenton, VA.
The end result is a unique, comfortable, and beautiful bench.
