Bench-town rock!

benches

Jonah, Vick & Austin being awesome

Late last week, we gathered our benches and stools as “inspiration” for the students of an incoming two week introductory course. With our work elegantly displayed, we tried to play it cool, but ended up giddy and snap-happy at what we’d accomplished together over the past three weeks. As you can see, while we all were given the general parameters of (1) dovetailing two legs to a top and (2) incorporating a stretcher using through tenons, each piece achieves it’s own unique statement and style. Working with such a talented and encouraging group, I personally feel more inspired than ever.
