This bench has been made by using 2x4 and 2x6 wood to construct the H structure, with four legs to add structural integrity. It is designed to emphasize, rather than suppress, the volume of 2x lumber handled by Ishinomaki Laboratory, which allows for a direct-cut and screw-fastening process. Itis intended to be placed on the porch where people can sit down to prepare for a trip, drink coffee, or combine several of them to create a gathering place.
