Timber Frame Bench

Timber Frame Bench

Mike is a very talented woodworker and is excited to work on cabinetry projects to the 16th of and inch AND woodworking projects with large hand tools that create big curls of wood.  

Recently, we were asked to build a bench for a retiring Professor for the University of Washington.  After decades of dedication to his field his collegues wanted to gift him something that he could enjoy every day for years and years to come, something, functional and beautiful, natural and creative.  Enter Dodges Classic Carpentry.

Their request was for an outdoor bench for two and the inspiration included pictures of the professor in front of some of his most signature web-like conceptual diagrams on a large chalkboard. 

Mike took this opportunity to create a one of a kind timber frame bench that held itself with Mortise and Tendon Joinery.  The gift was very well received.  Check it out.
