Cathy's bench is 50 inches long,17 inches wide and 17.5 inches high.The bench is constructed from old growth sugar maple. The ancient tree was windfallen from a winter storm and salvaged from Cathy's century farm sugar bush. The grain patterns are gently blistered and curly running not parallel but angled to the edge of the slab.Typical perhaps of trees older than 200 years as they gently twist with the prevailing winds. The centre stretcher is constructed from cherry.The finish is hand polished Rubio.Hopefully this bench survives for 200 years also
