Let's start with a good breakfast
Cheryl & Chris Hunter have a breakfast table now that will be even more comfy when seat cushions are soon done. This local Oregon white oak wood is from a Forest Grove neighbor - whose backyard tree had a few embedded tree house nails, but we cut around them just in time.
The butterflies are walnut which embellish and help hold things together. It's challenging working with air-dried "green" wood because of natural shrinkage, twisting and cracking but these effects also lend to a nice character - not found in anything but genuine, natural materials.
