Scott made this beauty for our front entry area. We have a small space. The last thing we needed was a big clunky piece of furniture to enclose it more. It's the perfect size at 14" deep.
The legs he rounded on the lathe and then added the braided pattern with a … Continue Reading ››
I often feel the need to rescue things. I've brought home my share of puppies needing mothering. I've also brought home plenty of furniture that needed some loving card.

Built-in storage around our fireplace.
