The wood was hand-selected for its strongly marked grain, then finished in a proprietary lacquered wenge finish. The hand-formed, hand-welded steel frame has a satin finish that will not rust. Whether you use this as a bench or a as a table, it will last for generations. Handmade in the USA. Guild Nines offers American-made furniture that is fresh and versatile in its simplicity.
