I was asked to create an outdoor bench for the Cragsmoor Free Library. The bench is featured in a landscaping redo and is dedicated to two longstanding volunteers of the library. The bench has a concrete base and a top made from Ipe, a wood which has strong outdoor characteristics. Furthermore, the top is coated with an outdoor finish made by sikkens. I have had great success with the durability of their exterior finishes.
The Bench weighs close to 350 lbs and commands a nice spot in front of the library. The building was designed by artist Frederick Dellenbaugh and opened in 1925
