Something it doesn't take much to make me happy.

I ordered a bench recently. I'm so pleased with the design and quality that it seemed a fun thing to share.

Well, I'm no photographer but here you can see how cute my African giraffe works with it.


  1. Ooh! That's pretty. Is it really... um, wavy? It looks like it's got a contour to the seat part.

    It's interesting how Japanese architectural style and Shaker furniture are so similar, isn't it?

  2. Thank you for the wonderful comments! It does have a central ridge, much like Oriental roofs, which bifurcates it nicely for two seats. And I never thought about the comparison to Quakers but the lack of nails and perfect fitting is so similar, I've been encouraged at home to buy more like it. I'll have to show it to my talented father and get his take on the woodworking aspects. Perhaps it will spark ideas for him!

  3. Lovely. It's bigger than I imagined. I'm not sure how I came up with that. Great giraffe.
