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.

Chair CardsThis blog was started to track the exceptional work by the students of UNCG in the Interior Architectural Design Program. Our History 221 and 222 classes use these cards to help familiarize us with historically significant design and designers. The initial purpose is for the students, however, it will remain for comments and use by anyone interested in design. - Brian - BSPeck@uncg.edu
