Matt, I’ll pass you their e-mail address if you want to work there for free!

I did have an other request from him, but they were too expensive for him. He wanted a bed and side tables, but he decided to go with mass produced pine, stained to look like Black walnut – not so nice to look at and will not last that long.

That’s the hardest thing to get across to people. Some of this stuff you get from retail stores isn’t much more then crap. Something you might build for him will still be around for 100 yrs. from now. Something from one of those retail stores might need to be replaced in just a few years. So…pay now, or pay later.
Great project. You did an awesome job by the way.

This is a beautiful dining set, Tony. It is nice to see the entire set posted together.

Well done.
