Reclaimed Salvaged Hurricane Sandy Wood Bench with Hand Turned Legs and Drawer

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The crotch of a sugar maple that fell during Hurricane Sandy was rescued and repurposed, as a bench. This sturdy piece features two scooped out seat grooves for comfort that reveal the internal graining of the piece. The legs and a circular drawer are hand-turned from shop cut-offs of sapele, a sustainable hard-wood. Mortise and tenon joinery provide superior strength for a piece that will last generations.

This is a rare opportunity to aid in the continuing relief effort and own a part of history. 5% of the proceeds from this piece will go to the Mayor's Fund to benefit victims of the storm. It is a chance to take something that was destroyed, invest it with a second life and by doing so give something back to those in need.

As seen in images bench measures 20" D x 5" L x 19" H.

This is a bespoke piece so custom dimensions, materials and finishes (both interior and exterior) can be accommodated. Please inquire for pricing.

All Stefan Rurak Studio pieces are designed and handcrafted in Brooklyn New York.
