I am trying to figure out what circa this is. We've always called it "The Deacon's Bench" and my dad brought it back from a church that was being torn down somewhere west of Boston in the early 70s, I think. It seems to be made of walnut (?) boards, and is held together by blocks underneath with screws. The arms slot into wooden pegs. Anyone have any idea of how old this might be? I've been searching Google and Pinterest and collector's site but this doesn't look like anything at all that I've encountered.
