Cedar Bench

150 150 Thuja Wood Art - Reclaimed Cedar Furniture Wood Art Vancouver Victoria Gulf Islands British Columbia

This cedar bench was commissioned to commemorate a loved one, hence the name ‘Vin’ was carved into the back rest.  Made from salvaged red cedar from the beaches of the BC coast, and constructed using mortise and tenon joinery, this bench now sits in a lovely garden setting.  The bench is finished with OSMO exterior wood oil finish (environmentally safe stamped), except the back which I left as I found it raw and weathered on the beach!  This creates a wonderful contrast between the sanded red and smooth wood and the rough grey driftwood that it was found as.
