By way of the Irish...

Good morning...hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!! Thought I would show you some more of Johns work....a couple of years ago he did alot of work for a couple that wanted to add old world charm to their newer house....I think in total he made them over thirty pieces of furniture,all from antique lumber. We were thrilled of course when the house was featured in a local magazine!! Everything you see here (that is wood) John made,my favorite is the mantle....hope you enjoy it! All the best,Chrissy

If you click on this photo you will see the cupboard in the background,it is 12 ft.long!!!
