Tansu Shoe Bench in Oak and Wenge
This model is one of our custom shoe storage benches, or getabako in Japanese. It is made one at a time to your exact specifications for size and materials. The shoe bench shown here is constructed in a combination of White Oak for the legs, trim and top. The side and back panels are Wenge. Wenge is a beautiful wood that is almost black with a Tung Oil finish. This wood was selected for it grain patterns to give the absolute best look possible for the piece.
The legs and side rails of this shoe bench are all connected using mortise and tenon joinery. The side and back panels for these units are all book-matched flat panels of solid wood. These getabako look great from every angle. As such they also make terrific little coffee tables, which is what this particular unit was purchased for.
Prices for these shoe benches start at about $2500 and depend on the wood selected and whether any other design changes are requested.
