Heritage Ukrainian Bench plansFree Heritage Ukrainian Bench plans - Build a piece of Western-Canadian history from a hardy group of immigrants for your front hall. 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. Favouring a “peasant baroque” style, early Ukrainian-Canadian woodworkers enjoyed ornamenting their pieces with both carvings and painted icons, often religious or political, and multi-colour finishes. This Ukrainian bench, collected in Saskatchewan, features a whimsical back that shows the joy that went into building the piece.
