This is a Miniature Park/Porch/Patio Bench that I designed as a model for a potential full-size Order. It’s made of Mahogany and Red Oak, and is constructed as a Full-Size rendering would be, using very strong Joinery. It collects dust and other things on my desk, waiting for someone to order a full-size one on my website.

That would make a great full-sized bench for sure, Mark.

I think so, too. I wish someone would ask me to build it. I have a few full-size Adirondack Chairs sitting around. No one seems to want them, and I have no fire place. I’ve thought about trying to get permission to set them outside a few of my frequently-frequented restaurants. I’m building a full-size one right now, in point of fact. Don’t know what I’ll do with it. It’s the nicest one yet, I think. I ventured into the realm of bent lamination for the arms., and carved some pinstripes, of a sort, into the sides.

Oh. This is a example of what my photography used to look like. I’ve gotten better. Thanks to those of you who’ve noticed. (Yoo noe hoo yoo r.)

It looks very nice Mark, but lets face it, there just isn’t very many miniature people around looking for these.

The full sized version of this bench would definitely be a looker!

As for offloading your Adirondack furniture, here’s a possibility: If you have the Street of Dreams home show (or others like it) in your area, try contacting the interior decorators. They usually do the exterior furniture also, and are looking for well made, handsome furniture to show off to the show-goers. It would be great advertising for you, and the furniture could be sold at the end of the show.

Before even looking at your page here, Dean, I Buddy you. Thank you. My area’s lousy with realtors and such. You wrink;ed my brain.
