Blacker House bench Woodworking Plan

from the WOOD Store

Curved lines on this bench soften the straight, boxy look typical of much Arts & Crafts furniture. Those curves, influenced by Asian designs, identify this piece as a Greene & Greene work. Although the original was made of teak with ebony accents, our cherry with cocobolo version proves just as striking. Traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery ensures it will withstand many derrieres dropping onto its lidded storage.
