Parson’s Bench makes handmade wooden bow ties from exotic and domestic lumber. No stains or dyes are used in our ties; they all rely on the natural color in the wood. Parson’s Bench is the creative outlet for Dwight DuBois, a Lutheran pastor and woodworker (hence the name Parson’s Bench) who lives in Des Moines, Iowa. “DuBois” is French for “of the woods” so it’s appropriate that Dwight has been working with wood for over 40 years. His other woodworking ranges from furniture to church furnishings to kitchen accessories (cutting boards and bamboo utensils). Visit http://parsonsbench.com for more information.
