New York City Park Bench


This piece evolved out of some stair rails that I been working on. New York, both old and new is represented and surrounds the velvet seat of central park. The end sections (not shown) are taken from the external framework of the twin towers and the rest of the city (chair) seem to rise from them. The colors come from the early morning new light. This piece won 1st Place, San Diego Fine Woodworking Association-Professional at the 2003 Design in Wood Show. I’m currently working on a similar piece that centers on the East River, with the Brooklyn Bridge dividing the bench into two sections. The city will be at night with blue, green, purple and black colors. 25”x77”x56” $10,800
