You work a long time at something and finally get the recognition that you have been waiting for, and I have had that experience this past year, Last January I lost one of the furniture store accounts when it went out of business, So I set out to find more or another furniture store that would handle the hand crafted furniture I build. I started with the child rockers , it has always been an eye catcher and a good seller and as I approached the store owner, she said : where were you back in December with those child rockers ! Sitting in a store that went out of business, ( what could I say ). This was the second store I approached.

And now that store has more of the furniture I build and now they have asked me to custom build coffee table
and Lamp table sets with no stain, just a clear finish, ( I finish every thing with satin lacquer, unless customer ask for something different ) and now some of the customers think their isn’t any finish on it ( you are looking at real wood, and the beauty of the wood, NOT a shine, like cheap furniture has. )

I’m just happy that it’s finally taking off, it took the experience I’ve gained and hard work to get their.
And I thank the lord all the time for the knowledge and ability to do this and to bring me the customers.
