Project Information

My Friends,
I hope you bear with me on this.

An old drawer front kicked to the curb. The red oak was finished blonde.
Western cedar fence offcuts that would never protect someone's yard.
Rejected white oak flooring that was warped, discolored, diseased or pocked.
A painted drawer front of finger joined pine from a desk no one loved.
A lonely warped and cracked hunk of walnut at the dusty bottom of the offcut bin.
Lonely, forgotten, imperfect, obsolete, broken and flawed, all are made new. All the disfigurements are beautiful. All the stains of the past are removed. All have come together to be far greater.

These crosses are going to people who are on our hearts.
Thanks for reading.

Good morning, it's a beautiful day here in Austin Texas. We are here for my nieces wedding. They receive my wife's pick for them.

Thank you all so much for the very kind comments and blessings. It's an incredible day.
