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, hand-made 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 a bit lighter than in these photos, which were taken after a rainstorm. 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 over-sized piece is required. Weighing in at around 350-400 lbs, this piece has recently been treated with a water repellant and will give you decades of pleasure, accompanied by 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 if it’s going outside. It would also make an incredible statement piece in a large hallway or dining room.
