Out of stock
This particular Pew is sold but we are making one more!
Here is the 3rd in our series of Pews, Benches and Tables we are creating from the 13ft, 74 year old Mahogany Pews from St Judes Church in Shirley Warren, Southampton
This is the first pew in the series that we have added a shelf. The original shelf was sloped for prayer books, which had lots of angles to work out and was too deep to be practical in a home.
Now, there is a level little shelf behind the seat, ideal for little plants or books, maybe a bible?
We always want our work to look like it has always been that way. Every part is recycled from the original pews.
The mahogany, imported from Israel in the 1950s due to the shortage of wood after the war, is rubbed down, oiled and waxed.
The grain of the wood pops out and is so tactile but with an oiled an waxed finish the colour is glorious.
Ultimately, this is a unique piece of Mid Century Furniture
Measurements are as follows, approximately this is a 4ft Pew
40cm seat height
90cm overall height
In the last picture you will see the bench version of these pews which are also available as will a matching tables
The St Judes Pew series and 100% recycled!
These will be available to view in our shop from Saturday 3rd February
