Bench #5 series #2
Sapele and Cast Concrete 28"H x 72"W x 22"D

Wood & Concrete Bench With A Back

The 6' long wood and concrete bench has a sweeping back that matches its length.  The legs are tucked under the seat and they mate to the stretchers like a traditional mortise and tenon joint.  The orientation of the stretcher allows me to build up the mass of the seat without the layering that has been at the core of the other benches in this series.  I intend on revisiting the bench by doing a version with white cast concrete and potassium dichromate treated Sapele.  I used this combination to great effect in Bench #13.
