The little brother of the popular splined bench, these benchs are limit runs that happen from time to time when the special select wood bin get filled up. For me, the size is mostly dictated by beautiful grain so special orders are not very practical. These benches are great for hallways where shoes are often removed or for extra seating for a small guest or a step up to reach an upper shelf (product waiver required). This particular bench is, I believe, made of French walnut. The splined miters are extremely strong.
