    My grandmother and her brother inherited their parents' farm in Illinois. Her nephew lived there for years, and in 1986 he cut down a large walnut tree on the property. He had it sawn into lumber and kiln dried, then used half of it for a large dining room table and brought the other half to...

    This rocker had lived for a while on Washington Island-tip of Door County in Lake Michigan. This is the most humid place I have EVER seen. The rocker was originally finished in a penetrating (non-film forming) finish that had pretty much failed. It had developed a white fungus or mold on the...
