A four legged design but given a more refined style with tapered and flared legs. The legs are through jointed and cross wedged to for strength. They are 460mm high which is a standard height for seating but they can also function as an occasional table. They can be made the length you chose seating up to four.
In these examples I have used a very lovely piece of burr elm and a deeply contrasted piece of wych elm but the design is great to showcase any particularly beautiful wood. I always try to have a selection of fine wood for just this kind of piece.
