The slatted top, made of white curly maple hand-selected for its strongly marketed grain, contrasts warmly against the sleek stainless-steel legs. The proprietary lacquer finish of the wood makes the most of its natural beauty; the satin finish of the hand-formed, hand-welded steel frame ensures that it will not rust. Whether you use it as a table or a bench, this piece will last for generations. Handmade in the USA. Guild Nines offers American-made furniture that is fresh and versatile in its simplicity. Small-batch production, talented craftsmen, and high-quality materials result in pieces that are as durable as they are beautiful, providing pride of ownership for years to come.
