Handmade Wooden Porch Bench

John made this bench for me many years ago. It has found a home in various places around the house and spent many years at the kitchen table. I like benches because you can squeeze in lots of little ones.
In recent years, it received a coat of white paint and took up residence on the front porch. A perfect place to set packages down while fiddling for the house key.

An even better place for grandchildren to gather or folks to sit a spell

Did you notice the nose-y pup peeking out the door window?

As a toddler, our youngest daughter, Abbey loved to climb on the bench and play peek-a-boo. These photos were taken in 91 and 92 when the bench was used at our kitchen table.

That is amazing...I love your bench, it's really beautiful. I love benches too, as we were raising our kids we had them at the table. It looks like a great place to place the grands for some cute pictures! Come say hi :D
