    Cherry Dining Tables

    We wrapped up a couple of cherry dining tables this week, and they couldn’t be more different, probably, if they tried.  The table to the left, a slab of 8/4 cherry with small bevels and rounded corners, has a welded metal ‘x’ shaped base, no ornament, straightforward and uncomplicated.  Forthright, I guess you could say.

    Steel and Stone Coffee Table

    Sam finished up this steel coffee table frame last week.  It will be leaving for Chicago as soon as the shippers can get here.  It started out as 40″ x 40″ and then, at the last minute, the size was changed to 60″ x 60″.  Quite the change actually.  It’s now a pretty big object.  […]

    Like This? Try That!

    If you like Mockingbird by Kathryn Eskine, or The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, try Colin Fischer by Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz! All three share an unusual narrator: a teen that has Asperger’s Syndrome or autism. Caitlin (Mockingbird) might look “normal” but she has Asperger Syndrome. Her […]
