Making the Squiggle Bench

Making the Squiggle Bench

This bench is an experiment more than anything. I came up with an idea and wanted to see if I could make it, which is a bit of a departure for most of my projects. The bench is made of solid walnut and ash. It's dimensions are 40" long, 20" tall, and 12.5" deep. Surprisingly it is not uncomfortable to sit on.

I didn't glue the base to the squiggle because I want to revisit a better base design in the future. One thing I realized would save a lot of time is starting from the middle and working my way out; this would let me attach two pieces at a time and really cut down on the time waiting for glue to dry.

I think this method for creating unorthodox shapes is pretty interesting. This shape in particular could make a nice coffee table by adding a piece of glass on the top.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments. I will do my best to answer them. Thanks for watching!
