Twin live edge cherry benches

Two cherry live edge slabs came from northern Vermont through an arborist who specializes in sustainable maintenance of wooded areas.

Consecutive cuts of the same log make the slabs mirror images of each other, resulting in a match of color, grain, and shape, perfect to use as a set of twin benches.   Only one bench is pictured here.

Handmade cherry butterflies stabilize the cracks. Turned legs set in cross braces and through-wedged tenons compose a simple base that does not compete visually with the beauty of the bench tops.

Hand rubbed oil and wax finish.
