What would we have done if we had known that itwould be three years, including 8 months of renovation, before we could start making furniture? If only we had known...we, both, would have asked the very same question:
Continents Colliding: "The Summit" Trees on 2 continents, old and new, collide: 'African Cherry' [Makore] crowned by 3" 'Canadian Maple'.
Accommodating small spaces, these two tables used daily independent of one-another, as a buffet and a sofa table, come together to seat six acquaintances or eight close friends. Central African 'Marbled-Makore'
"Zebra": glass-topped coffee table, constructed of a gorgeous, striped hardwood from West Africa, with matching, glass-topped end-tables in either square or round.
"The Stacc": matching set of end-tables, with independently stacking drawers, made from three different types of oak - red, white and tiger.
"Simply Oak": coffee table with an accomodating slide-leaf at each end, with matching end-tables.
MATTHEW'S THOUGHT: "WHAT IF WE USE TREES THAT FOR VARIOUS REASONS ARE SPECIAL, LIKE THOSE PRIVATELY OWNED AND LOVED BY ONE FAMILY FOR MULTIPLE GENERATIONS, TO MAKE OUR FURNITURE?" MY RESPONSE: "PERFECT!" It has been a very long and difficult journey, but we are finally open for business. Our thanks go out to everyone who helped, a little or a lot, along the way: we simply could not have done it without you. - Matt and Jay
