Locust Bench


Temperamental Beauty

Locust is known for its durability and grain character. It is also notorious for wood tension – creating twists and cracks as the lumber dries. Always on the lookout for beautiful, unusual pieces of wood, it took several years for Mokuchi to collect the pieces of stable, aged locust needed to bring this bench to life. The top is from one tree, the legs from another and the stretcher from yet a third. The wood grain is exquisite and worth the wait. The pleasing, slight upward sweep and all around shape of the top was the departure point in creating this bench. The legs are tilted ever slightly inward, requiring precision hand joinery to scribe the pieces for a perfect fit.
