Unexpected Dinner Guests? Sturdy Wooden Benches to the Rescue

January 26th, 2014 by Peggy Farabaugh

Cherry wood benches are the perfect solution for accommodating unexpected guests

Wooden benches are the perfect solution for accommodating unexpected guests.  These modern American benches are handcrafted in Vermont from solid natural cherry wood.  Which do you prefer… modern, mission or shaker benches (below)?

Shaker benches fit in with most any type of kitchen or dining room decor

Shaker benches fit in with most any type of kitchen or dining room decor.  Hide them under the table when not in use. But voila, they are at your service when you need them (Shaker benches shown in reclaimed barnwood and natural cherry woodMission style dining bench shown in natural cherry wood).

Have you ever sat down to eat just as the doorbell starts to ring?  You look outside hoping it’s a quick UPS delivery but instead it’s your son’s best friend or your neighbor who’s locked out of the house.  No fear– you can warmly welcome your unexpected guest by simply pulling out the wooden bench that sits humbly and discreetly under the table.

Sturdy, solid wood dining benches are perfect for small kitchens, breakfast nooks and dinner parties with lots of guests! Each wooden bench shown is thoughtfully designed and meticulously crafted to provide you and your guests with a comfortable dining experience.  Handcrafted in Vermont using real, solid woods that are sustainably harvested, they are carefully crafted to serve your family and guests for many years to come!

Need a custom size bench?  That’s easy!  Our high quality wooden benches are made to order to so we’re happy to modify the dimensions to meet your exact needs.  Give us a call or connect with us on Facebook and we’ll get started today.

All Weather Polywood Outdoor Furniture: Recycled From Plastic Trash

May 5th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh



All weather outdoor pool, patio, beach and garden furniture by Polywood is made from recycled plastic bottles

Many thanks to our Vermont Woods Studios staff members who volunteered to pick up trash today as part of Vermont's Green Up Day.


We bagged about a dozen pounds of old beer bottles, empty cigarette packs and plastic shopping bags, most of which we were able to place in Vernon's recycle bins.


So that's a fun project for us to do and besides supporting our community it also it dovetails into our new line of Polywood all weather outdoor furniture


Polywood is a line of patio, porch, pool and beach furniture that's made from (90-100%) recycled plastic bottles.  We love the Polywood brand because of it's eco-friendly, green nature but also because it's 100% made in America and the quality is superior to any comparable patio furniture we've seen.
