2011 Benches

I am trying to revisit my earlier work.  Here are two benches I developed for the Fall 2011 semester.  I love the way they turned out and the similar language they share. 

This bench is a Curly Maple with Walnut Stringers.  I used a flowing joint to keep the wood grain on the exterior of the bench as it changes from a horizontal to a vertical plane.  This is more of a blonde Tiger Maple that I came across at the Hardwood Store of NC.  Again I used the flowing joint on the sides to keep the grain but implemented walnut splines to reinforce the joint.  The two benches work together as a nesting pair with this bench resting 1/4 inch above the other.  I display them in my home separately as accent pieces.
