Product Features
  • Made of monkey pod wood
  • Hand-carved in Thailand
  • Finished in walnut oil
  • Bench measures 48 inches long x 17 inches high x 18 inches wide

Story Behind the Art
Khun Na and her husband started out sourcing products for customers. Over the years they have seen many designs made by artisans and have been presented with sketches from many clients. They have to interpret the requested design so that it can be fashioned in a manner that the wood workers can make consistently and that is pleasing to the client from their original idea. They try to adapt existing wood workers designs to fit the clients' desires first, as that is what the wood workers know best. They find beauty in the natural inclusions and try to use them as often as possible. These designs grow from trends and ideas that they have seen over the years.

What is Worldstock?

    We replaced too many dining chairs with 2 of these benches and they're beautiful: amazing wood grain, super sturdy, incredibly comfortable. We do have wood floors and didn't want them scratched, so we added sliders to the bottoms.

    I'd read all the reviews for the handmade wooden natural edge bench. Didn't see anything negative, so felt fairly safe to place my order for one bench. I would order two more depending on how well this first order goes. My bench arrived very quickly, and packaged very well. Instructions were simple, straight forward... there's only TWO LEGS that need to be screwed to bottom of bench using supplied lag bolts. Not rocket science. Should be quick and easy, right? But UNFORTUNATELY, leg "B" sent with MY bench did not match the number on leg "A" & was not meant to go with my bench... It was too big to fit into the handcarved notch on underside of seat, did not match up with pre-drilled holes, and was a full 2.5 inches too long. Little did I know I would need to acquire special tools, etc, to chisel out the notch on underside of seat, shave some thickness from the top sides of the leg to get it into that notch, and then cut it 2.5 inches shorter on the bottom. GRRRRRR... A LOT of extra work and expense for a bench that's already fairly spendy. But hey... its a beautiful piece. I love it. And I'd like to have a couple more. But I won't risk buying two more and having to rebuild each of them in order to assemble. If it weren't for the mis-matched leg, I would have given this FIVE STARS.

    Love the look of this bench but we did have to chisel a bit to assemble, because legs would not go into slots, very nice height

  • beautiful, heavy bench
    Verified Purchase

    I saw a similar bench used as a coffee table in a small photo in an article about a mommy-blogger. I contacted the reporter and the mommy blogger who said the table was about 5 years ago and from a regional home furnishing store. So I was on the hunt! Finally after a while this turned up and looks almost identical to the one in the article. I LOVE IT. It does have a medium sized crack in it and a couple of small knots but it is a slab of wood so I don't mind. It is very very heavy but needs only four screws to assemble. You will also need a bolt screwdriver (preferably ratcheting) because where the screws go is recessed, and a normal wrench will not do the job. That is a very minor thing, there are only four screws and it is solid. The color is beautiful--I was a little worried about the potential variation but it does look much like the photo. I believe when I ordered there were TWO versions here on overstock so double check that's the color you want. On the long side, it is flat on one side and slightly curved on the other, as displayed in the photo. It is gorgeous. Plus between the free shipping and the club O discount this was quite a good value!

  • best thing I've ordered from Overstock
    Verified Purchase

    This is the favorite item I've ordered so far from Overstock. I use it as a coffee table, as I have a small living room, sits in front of the sofa perfectly and gives the whole room warmth. It is hardwood, and I don't have to worry about water rings. Very heavy and solid. Mine has a crack on one end (not wide), which gives it character. The slightly curved side faces my sofa. Perfect height. Color in picture is very accurate. The craftsmanship is excellent, and it has a nice smooth finish. If you want to go "organic," this is the way to go. I don't need to put anything on top of the coffee table like candles or vases. It speaks for itself. By the way, you need a socket wrench to screw in the four bolts. Got a multipurpose one for about $10 that I just chuck into my toolbox.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Can this bench be sold without the legs? Would it be possible to use as base for vessel sink?"

    • A:

      No,this is not available without legs.

  • Q:

    "Can these benches be stained to a dark walnut color? Would you recommend that a customer stain to obtain a darker tone or would that ruin the look?"

    • A:

      This bench features hand-rubbed oils that dry and harden, not petroleum based stains. If you wish to stain with a different finish, we would recommend first sanding off the applied oil and then stain.

  • Q:

    "There are different colors in the pictures, with some being light and others dark. Which color actually ships?"

    • A:

      Hello Monrob, this bench is natural wood and not man made wood product or synthetic materials. Therefore, the tones may vary from tree to tree. When you cut a larger branch down the middle, there is a heart wood in the center which is darker, and a lighter wood towards the outside. There is no color added to the wood. The translucent natural oil gives the wood more brown tones, but it does not color the wood. Thank you for shopping with us!

  • Q:

    "Why did you choose this product?"

    • A:

      size and style with good recommendations

    • A:
