Where do you sew?
The table has a story. Our farm is in an area of British Columbia where huge cedars grow. The woods behind our house has huge cedars and also the massive stumps of trees cut down so many years before when the area was settled. Our farm dates to the 1930s. We have lovely small barn which has been built with planks of cedar that were most likely cut from trees from the property. Husband took some of these massive planks from the stalls in the barn and transformed them into the harvest table. The planks are thick, thick, thick and the table would be the place I would shelter under in case of an earthquake. The chairs were a Craigslist purchase. By the time we get around to changing the flooring downstairs, it will probably be a retro trend. Or at least I can hope!
