On a 2009 motorcycle trip From Phoenix to Telluride Co. & back through Four Corners & Monument Valley’s Trading Post My wife discovered this bench she liked & asked if I could make it & of course I say yes, not knowing for sure whether I could actually pull it off. So she took pictures of it & well here it is:!

There is a lot of Navajo influence built into it. The cushions are also hand made.

I’m surprised they let you take pictures of it. The Indian or Native American (take your pick) tribes in this area don’t want anybody taking pictures of, or on, their lands, or their stuff.

Odd you would say that< I’ve lived here for 43 years and the only time I’ve run across a protest was taking a picture of an elderly woman making a rug in a gallery, but I gave her a couple bucks and she was fine. I have a small amount of Cherokee blood & know how to respect Indian ways.

I’m relaying my experience. Some of the more well-known, really old pueblos around here give tours, and they’re very specific about no pictures. Also, if you go to any of their festivals, where they do the traditional dances – same thing. And we have a train that runs between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, that goes through some of the smaller pueblos, and they announce “no picture taking” over the PA.

Very nice. It is very well constructed. Great work.

-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.
