Custom Entry Bench

Posted by Jason Keller on

We don't always make furniture, but when we do we kill it!  This beautiful entry bench was a custom creation for a customer.  They wanted something for the family to use to store shoes and misc. clothing as well as a nice comfy bench to sit, put on shoes, and embark into the cold Ohio winters.  

The customer has great taste and requested the materials match their current decor and colors.  The bench needed to be durable as they have 2 young boys.  The white was chosen to match their trim paint while we used distressed stained wood for contrast and to match some of their rustic decor.  We used wainscotting for texture and beautiful poplar wood stained in dark walnut.  We love using poplar as it allows us to replicate much more expensive wood while absorbing stain very well once conditioned.  As a hard wood, poplar is durable and a perfect choice for furniture on a budget.

The bench itself is made with 3/4" birch ply with a wainscotting  overlay.  We also ordered custom legs that provide a touch of elegance.

If you are looking for a beautiful piece to add to your home just drop us a call 614-682-3331.  We have limited production spots available, so contact us ASAP to get on our production calendar.
