The Memory Bench is small enough to find a place in any home yet large enough to be very useful. This virtue alone makes it a appropriate Wedding Gift.

Carving their names and wedding, anniversary, graduation or birth date on the bench makes it a pleasant reminder of an important day in their lives. What will the future hold for this bench?

For many  the Memory Bench has become their signature gift.
It gives them a great deal of joy and satisfaction knowing their gift will be practical and decorative
in its new home, for many years.

    The traditional Memory Bench stands 18 inches tall ( the same height as a standard dining chair)
and the top is 12 X 18 inches.
There is room for 13 characters or spaces on each of the two long sides and room for seven on the ends.
Each bench is carved and then assembled. The carving around the apron is included in the price. Additional carving could be put on the rails near the floor if required. ($1.00 per character) After assembly and a final sanding they are stained with a semi-transparent rubbing stain and then a clear protective coating is applied.
Some customers like to put a brass plaque underneath the top of the bench to indicate their sentiments or best wishes.
