An artform focused on quality, not quantity!


There was an old farm table from days of yore.  It has stood the test of time, but not without some scars, bends and warps.  It has seen the best of times and the worst of times in this family.  It has witnessed laughter and tears.  But mostly it bore tribute to the love that bound this family through generations.

The table showed many outward signs of shrinkage (leaving gaps in the top), scars, and warping.

It also had a couple of wonderful reminders of the past owners in the form of a burn mark from an old iron and a dark stain at the left-hand side at the head of the table, where, we like to imagine, the man of the house sat each morning, sipping his hot coffee.  Or mayhaps, it was the woman of the house, taking a well-deserved break from ironing.  Who knows for sure?  All we know is those wonderful marks had to be preserved, if at all possible.
