After several travels this and last year, I have started to notice benches. These wonderful things that people make for you to sit on when you are in need of a break.


This one from Inks lake Texas



This one in Oslo Norway


Train station in Sweden


This beast is from Blackwater falls state park in WV.

Now show me yours.

They all have cigarette butts scattered around them here. I have no unusual park bench pictures to post right now, but you would be impressed by the behemoth in our local garden centre, I think it’s about 28’ long. Will take a photo next time I’m in there, but you may have to wait a while, as gardening sucks in my opinion. I like the Swedish one.

I really like wooden benches. They are among the simplest, yet most practical uses of wood.

cutworm wins.

you can move it into the sun

or shade

those other ones are either fixed into a permanent spot, or by virtue of weight, cannot be moved by me

The canoe prow bench was made by a mate. He calls it ” The Men’s Debating Bench “

The spindle back is made from an unloved pine board I kept running into at a big box store.

The wire frame chairs must have been made in the thousands. I could go to the fleas today and pick up six today for around $10. They usually have ratty, rectangular upholstery and look a fright. One of the best sitting chairs I’ve been in.

Yeah, he’s a proper artist. It’s all hand made, not because of a philosophical bent but because he only had a very limited kit when he started. I lent some gouges and a router later.
