Seafarers: Waterfront Park, Piney Point MD – Bench #5

I just completed an order for eight of my Bench #5s. The benches are at the heart of a new waterfront park at the Seafarers campus in Piney Point, Maryland. The benches are being used to solicit donations to help pay for the park. You can get a sense of the location from this “before” shot on the Seafarers website. The transformation is stunning and I am honored to have been a part of it!


This is the kind of project that requires careful planning if I was going to deliver the benches on time. The slideshow below will give you a glimpse of the process.

I arrived at Seafarers and the maintenance crew from the school had my benches unloaded and placed before I knew it. The campus is beautiful and this new water side park is a wonderful addition.



This slideshow clearly shows the variation from one bench to the next.
