Heritage Ukranian Bench Wood Plans


From 1891 to the beginning of World War I, many Ukrainians took advantage of a Canadian government program designed to populate the Western provinces. Escaping cultural persecution and economic repression, the new settlers brought agricultural and manufacturing skills, and they applied them fervently in the new land. Favoring a “peasant baroque” style, early Ukrainian-Canadian woodworkers enjoyed ornamenting their pieces with both carvings and painted icons, often religious or political, and multi-color finishes. This Ukrainian bench, collected in Saskatchewan, features a whimsical back that shows the joy that went into building the piece.

I reproduced this decorative little hall bench from a very grainy photo. Because I knew only the outer dimensions of the piece, I spent a lot of time adjusting the size of the pieces to come up with the right proportions. Some elements of the finished product vary slightly from the original, but the result is a comfortable, functional piece, perfect for the front hall.

To test how the piece would look as a whole, I built a full-size mock-up from scraps before I started on the real thing. That let me sit down and try it out to get a sense of how the finished project would feel. The mock-up also allowed me to adjust sizes of the individual parts to replicate the original more closely.
