It is the years of constant use revealed in every ding, gouge, deep crack, and scratch that enrich the character of this impressive carpenters' workbench from France.
Unique to this console is the (newer) two shelves serving as a wine rack with light decorative carving along the front.
The rough hewn top shows heavy wear creating it's rustic appeal. In the photo of the top, notice the circular holes that served a purpose for the carpenter who originally used this workbench.
Please examine the close up photos to appreciate the deep patina, joints and old hardware.
It has one traditional long vice along the left leg; this one has been carved to compliment the scalloped curves of the shelves.
This console table has been restored and waxed, it is strong, stable and ready to be used and enjoyed as a unique wine rack.
