Re: Use of walnut for bench top?... *PIC*

Gregory v Forster

attch is a drawing I made of a Walnut workbench from Chickering and Sons piano factory. When I saw it, about 2010, it was located at the lobby of a corporate office in Rochester, NY.
I believe it came out of the auctions of Aeolian Piano Works (East Rochester, NY)
in the early 1970s. I remember going to these with my Dad; though I don't recall this bench and I had little interest in woodworking at that time.
