Before 80% of the earths old growth forest had been cleared, every beam was rift sawn, entire barns were built out of walnut. "Dunnage", the square pieces of wood used as support and padding in building, shipping and trucking, were made of high quality wood species, like oak. These days, dunnage is made from plastic. The Miyake Bench elevates the unique and incredibly dense grain of this vintage wood to heirloom quality, small batch furniture. The finish is a traditional and non-toxic process, using a rusty nail and vinegar. Floating dovetail joints provide both solid craftsmanship and understated design detail. Orders of custom species and sizes available.
