This table was the 2nd project we completed with the non-profit I created, Artisan Care. It was made from locally harvested Tennessee cherry.
We got introduced to a local non-profit that assists homeless people with first-time home ownership and rehabs existing homes to make them livable again. We decided to create a table for a couple that is raising their 2 granddaughters. They only had a card table in the kitchen.
A local furniture designer created the table and benches, we had the money for the lumber donated and a group of local woodworkers got together in September to build it. We finally delivered it last week to the couple.
You can see pictures from the build and read more at: http://artisancare.org/fairview-table/
We have another project that will be delivered in December to a YWCA domestic violence shelter in Lafayette, IN and more builds in the works. Let me know if you would like to talk about planning a build were you live.
When craftspeople are able to share what we make, everybody wins. Thanks for looking.
