Built In Bench and Custom Farmhouse Table In Laguna Beach

This was one our most green products built to date! The built in bench and the farmhouse table were built using only solid FSC certified wood materials, without the use of any engineered wood.

Even the beadboard backing was custom made using solid Pine planks typically used for wainscoting applications – in almost all typical beadboard applications MDF beadboard is used, which contains volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and contains formaldehyde. Because our customer was extremely sensitive to chemicals we even reduced the use of adhesives to an absolute minimum. In putting together the built in bench we used the combination of screws, pocket screws, and nails as much as possible in avoiding the use of glue. We made the bench top operable to allow the customers to use the inside space for storage and created a solid wood lip on the outside to make sure the cushions would not slip out. The most challenging part of the bench was the V corner that we had to build around – since the bench was going to be a single piece we had to make sure we build exactly to each angle in each corner before we actually installed the cabinetry. To make sure this came out perfectly we created a template first and then built the bench around the angles it reflected.

The farmhouse table was built as two separate pieces: the base and the top separately. The table top was built using solid 6″ wide pieces of FSC certified walnut material, at 1.5″ in thickness, and was left unfinished to allow the customer to apply natural oil as a sealant instead. The base was built using solid Douglas Fir material – instead of using glue in connecting the table base elementes we used 3 inch industrial strength screws. Where the glue was absolutely essential we used water based low VOC product. Special low VOC white lacquer was used to finish the the base of the farmhouse table, thereby matching it to the finish used for the bench. The end result was a beautiful contrast between the classic white paint on the bench and table base and the natural exposed walnut table top.
