Black Walnut Bench
This bench was designed to live in a client’s 1850s home in coastal New England. “I am drawn to and inspired by the beautiful simplicity of the Shaker style, which is very popular in New England,” Monica said. “I especially enjoyed shaping by hand the seat and arms of this piece with my drawknife and spokeshave.”
