As the National Park Service celebrates its 100th anniversary this month, New Hampshire furniture maker David Lamb has recently completed a woodworking project honoring one specific national park, Acadia in Maine, which is also celebrating its centenary in 2016.
The project began with what David referred to as a “wonderful idea” from Tyra Hanson, owner of The Gallery at Somes Sound, to commission a furniture piece to commemorate Acadia’s 100th anniversary. David’s original presentation focused on his idea to represent the extreme weather conditions experienced in northern New England, particularly black ice (more on that shortly) via wood, but the conversation among David, the gallery owner and the patron broadened the scope of the piece so that it represented all four seasons.
