Peasant bench

Handmade walnut bench coated in black lacquer with four turned ash legs and scalloped, beveled edges on the seat.  Crafted by Scott McGlasson of Woodsport, located in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The artist harvested the wood from a walnut tree felled in the tornado that touched down in south Minneapolis on August 19, 2009.
