Enormous-Scale Hand-Made English Wooden Camel-Back Bench
There are no adequate words to describe the beauty and scale of this extraordinary English wooden bench, handmade from ash, oak, and sycamore. At over nine feet in width and five feet in height, two people can comfortably sit lengthwise and never touch feet. Six people can sit on it with room to spare. The stunning natural silver and brown patina is true to the color in these photos, which were taken after a rainstorm. Since then, we have sealed the entire bench with a water repellant so it can stay outside and in good condition year-round in any climate. Striking from all angles, the bench is extremely solid and with no wobble, and would be magnificent placed in a woodland garden or at the end of a large allée where an oversized piece is required. Weighing in at around 350-400 lbs, this piece amazes they eye with its form and scale and definitely has the “WOW” factor. Truy, a one-of-a-kind piece, but please install the feet on pieces of stone or concrete footings to prevent sinking and erosion to feet.
