Boat Bench 

We have long wanted to make furniture from an old reclaimed dugout canoe, originally hewn from a single tree trunk. We finally found one that was no longer seaworthy, sporting a rich patina accrued over many years of use, in Kilifi on the Kenyan coast. We seized the opportunity to make this one-of-a-kind bench. We cut it down to size, sanded it down, applied a light finish to preserve the wood, and mounted it on a contemporary steel base.
