This style of bench was designed more than 100 years ago by Edward Lutyens, a British architect and designer.
We couldn’t resist this unique and elegant piece crafted from cypress that was salvaged from the bottom of a river down south. He resawed and coopered a plank to craft the seat, then used bent lamination to craft the curved supports and stretchers. It’s always hard to choose a winner, so we wanted to highlight some of our other favorite winners.
The Oak Floor Chair built by Joe Doherty, Seth Welty and Emilie Taylor in New Orleans received multiple votes from our staff. We were also impressed by Garrett Glaser’s Eridu tables (left) made from teak patio furniture and Zeke Leonard Notirondack Chairs (right) made from flour mill floor beams. We also loved the wormy chestnut and beautiful photographs in this kitchen island by Cubby. Thanks to all for their creative entries and congratulations to Clark Kellogg who wins a Fine Woodworking Archive Collection DVD-ROM, a shop apron, and a Fine Woodworking mug. Just because the lumber in Clarkatron's bench did not get pulled off of a barn or pulled out of a construction dumpster, that still does not mean that he did not breathe life back into material that had been otherwise lost. The point of these blogs is to bring woodworkers together and allow them to share their thoughts, opinions, ideas, and work.
I really couldn't pick a favorite (personally, I'm kinda fond of the Trestle Candleholders). With all due respect to Fine Woodworking staff and contest judges, you lost sight of the primary qualification for entry in this contest.

A log on the bottom of a river is just a log, and it's wood really can't be considered reclaimed.

Projects used a wide variety of recycled wood and other materials including driftwood, barn boards, cut offs, old pieces of furniture, fences, floorboards, house sheathing, pallets, fences, boat materials, paneling, and even yard sticks! The sculptural and comfy-looking chair is definitely fine and with 98% recycled materials, according to the group, it clearly fits the bill for this competition.
Oldwood says he's also building matching benches for the sides, and thrones for the ends of this table. Sinker logs are sometimes naturally occuring from blow-downs, and sometimes from the 'one that got away' from a log raft.
There is also an aesthetic that tends to come with recycled and reclaimed timber that accepts flaws and marks of a previous life and far too many of the projects overworked their wood to hide that - they may aswell have been made of new timber.

Check in every weekday for news, information, projects, and answers to questions from Fine Woodworking readers everywhere. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. For the record my favourites were the Rest room at rear table, its companion stacked cube and the reclaimed wood end table (yes I liked the red castors!).
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
The wood itself was a joy to work, and actually shimmers when the light hits it just right,” he wrote. I can't help but think that it would have been a little easier to judge if the projects submitted conformed to the rules of the contest! Instead of letting them sit there for perpetuity, Clarkatron’s log was salvaged from the deep to make furniture. We get to give out the prize, but that doesn’t mean that you folks can’t heap on the accolades.
