Gered says: This piece is made from a single slab of native Black Walnut. Its design is influenced by the carved furniture of the West African Senufo Tribe. The legs are carved using traditional hand tools. That combined with the clean lines of the slab and bench back are meant to elegantly blend primitive and modern aesthetics.
