Torii is constructed using traditional exposed mortise-and-tenon joinery for the legs which is sufficiently strong and expresses the honest intent of the chair. The rails of the chairs under-structure are connected using concealed wood dowels, and the seat is secured with guiding dowels and specialized metal fittings. The arched back rest is cleverly joined to each back leg with two long steel dowels and epoxy glue. This ensures this critical joint will not fail or crack, while allowing to keep the material thin and light.
Handcrafted to order in Vancouver BC. Bensen items typically have a lead time of about 12-14 weeks.
