Gear Bench


A supplier in Michigan called one day to say he was stopping by on his way south with some nice walnut slabs.  The next day, he arrived and a load of lumber was purchased.

In 2009, the original engine in my Volkswagen bus locked up, while having a new engine built, I disassembled the original and found the culprit…a seized bearing.  Since the crankshaft was of no use for an engine I set it aside for future use.

The Gear Bench is the marriage of walnut slab and Volkswagen crankshaft.  It is a beautiful marriage.  18″ x 25″ x 54″  2014
