Bench with shoe storage shelves and charred wood finish
Our benches are handmade to order at our workshop in Mid Wales using high quality softwood.
The benches are chunky and extremely strong, stable and a lovely addition to any room.
Although sold as a shoe store, they could happily be used for other purposes such as additional seating or a bookcase.
The rustic, minimalist design is accentuated by charring the wood which highlights the grain making its natural beauty stand out.
Once charred, the units are then sanded back to a smooth 180 grit to give the distinctive finish where the natural wood colour comes through against the charring.
This process is based upon the ancient Japanese art of Shou Sugi Ban where wood is charred to improve its resistance to the elements.
We use this process for its aesthetic appeal which ensures that each piece of furniture we make is truly unique.
We like to think they are beautifully burnt!
We have a variety of wood stains available to ensure the piece fits with your current decor and gives the finish of your choice (unit show is Whitewash).
These options can be seen in the last picture and links to items in the other colours can be found at the bottom of this listing.
We then seal the wood with 2 coats of high quality Osmo Wax Oil (choose from Matt / Satin / Glossy) which gives a strong, durable surface which is water repellent and hard wearing.
We can offer samples of the stains and finishes available to ensure you get the correct look please see the link below.

The shelf spaces are both 18cm high.
