We couldn’t help sharing this gorgeous bench made by Ed. It’s made of black walnut sanded to a beautiful finish and paired up with hairpin legs. We thought this was a perfect example of what can be done with hairpin legs, for an original indoor / outdoor piece.
Black walnut is a highly prized wood that can fetch big prices. It is a heavy and strong wood though can be easily worked. It can be expensive and hard to come by so if you find a good specimen, jump on it! As you can see from Ed’s bench the wood is dark and fine-grained, making a beautiful and durable piece. Ed has rounded all the edges of the wood creating a smooth, weathered look that will make sitting on this bench a pleasure.
Here at Modern Legs we offer bench legs in addition to the standard hairpin legs. Both can certainly be used to create a beautiful and sturdy bench. Our bench legs come in both tube steel and flat bar and our hairpin legs come in many styles including the original hairpin leg, 3 rod hairpin legs, and Just the Tip hairpin legs. All of our legs are made here in the USA, and work well with many bench designs.
Check out our wide selection for your next DIY furniture project. And if you’re in the greater Boston area keep your eyes out for Ed’s amazing hairpin leg creations on Craigslist – thanks for sharing Ed!
