I delivered two of my new Half Moon benches to Ember Restaurant today. This new bench design is not officially for sale yet but chef/owner, Brian Collins, saw my prototype in the works and ordered a few for the foyer at Ember (which by the way is the best new restaurant on the central coast of California!).The bench top is reclaimed douglas fir. The base is welded steel.
Here is a video showing the concept and design of the Half Moon bench (below).
It’s hard to believe it’s been 4 months since I started mocking up this chair (original posting here)! Somehow the paying jobs always seem to take precedence over the fun stuff. Nevertheless, the chair made its way back to the work bench today. I finished mocking up the steel legs and wooden seat and back.
