  6. Recycled Chestnut Bathroom Furniture

    We just finished five custom pieces for a client's new bathroom in recycled chestnut. I have been having more and more requests for pieces in that wood lately. I don't know if it's a fad, or if I just like it so much that I'm able to sell more people on the idea of it. It's a great (but...

  8. 2"x4"s from the thirties to a modern style bed.
