Hancock Bench
by: Taimi Barty

Hancock Bench
The bench is built out of Cherry. It was commissioned by a couple who wanted a sturdy bench at the end of their bed that would be used for daily exercises
and be stable enough to have the
grandkids climb on it. The clients wanted the legs to be quite heavy, heavier than I would, at first, have liked. It was challenging, and ultimately really fun, to play with the balance of the members to create a sturdy look without also creating a heavy look. Slight changes in the relationships between the members can
have a great effect on the overall appearance. My husband and I worked onthis bench together and it was fun to bounce ideas around.

The finish is water based acrylic.

18” high, 17” deep and 40” long
