It started off so simply, to make a chair that would be strong enough to sit on in armour... Then came the additional requirements...
- Wouldn't it be nice not to just make a chair, but a bench in case others need a respite.
- Wouldn't It be nice if it had no pegs or pins to be lost
- Wouldn't it be nice it to folded up for easier transport
- Strong, very strong so up to 3 fully armoured fighter's could sit on it.
So naturally it needed to be made from wood, but not just any wood, that would be too easy... I decided on making it from Knotty wood (wood unsuitable to general sales as it has lots of knots (which look great) but also not straight and with an uneven surface. (which increases the "fun")
May I present the bench.
