Testimonials & Photos

Our selection ranges from a classic tapered-leg bench that can be assembled from one of our kits, to an ornately carved and gilded cabriole leg bench.

In between there are many choices both in custom finishes and kit form: Louis XVI Bench with Turned & Fluted Legs, 18th Century English Mahogany Bench with Turned Legs; or the 17th Century Flemish Style Bench with Balustre Turnings and Carved Feet.

The poplar benches are intended for painting.  Their seats are made from hardwood-edged, birch-faced plywood.  The premium wood varieties come with solid hardwood seats breadboarded at each end.  All benches have solid hardwood legs and rails.  Except for the Louis XV Cabriole Bench, all benches have a music/tool storage space under the hinged seat.
