Each year, I seem to have flurries of order activity of certain items. One year, I have a string of beds to do, then a few dining tables in a row or a number of case pieces. Some years, all I do it make chairs. This year has been the year of the Waltham Bench. I have been doing these one after the other in different finishes, colors and sizes. Dare I say, "trend"? We'll see.
I do like making these and while the 5' bench is the one that I make most, I have made it in 6', 4 1/2'. 5 1/2', 3', 3.5' and I am in the process of making a 4' version of this bench. I make it with a more traditional tall crest rail but the thin rail has been the most asked for lately. Even though the thin rail has a more modern look, it is still a very traditional form. Stay tuned for one with arms. I have a new order for 4 of them.
Here are a few pics of recent benches.

The federal blue 6' Waltham Bench can be seen at the Park Hyatt in Washington DC. This color can look a bit gray blue in some light or electric vibrant blue in other light. The bench and three custom low back chairs are off to the left.
