Cedar Monastery BEnch

Chuang Yen Monastery, Carmel, NY

Outdoor benches in all-weather Port Orford Cedar for the rock garden operated by the Buddhist Association of the United States.   

The surface of the bench has a slight arc/crown in it to encourage rainwater runoff and a subtle softness to the form.

Dimensions: 72" long x 17-3/4" wide x 18" high.

Collaboration with native plant landscape designer, Landscape Restorations.

Jessica's article about designing and building this bench appeared in the June 2016 issue of Fine Woodworking magazine!
