Meanwhile, Nat and the lads at NMT Woodworking in South Portland, Maine, have been busy.
Living space at Graves Light is at a premium – none mores than the kitchen on Level 6. That’s the old Watch Room, a circular room of bronze and steel that sits on top of the granite tower and just below the glass Lamp Room.
The NMT crew created this custom mahogany bench seat to fit against the curved wall.
They built it for serious chowder eating. The marine-grade mahogany is able to withstand extreme temperatures and salt air.
You can see how the curvature matches that of the bronze kitchen stove that our man Wyatt designed over the winter.
Nat will be installing the bench system this week, weather permitting, as always. So stay tuned.
