I met a fellow who had one of the few American Chestnut trees that survived the blight. Several years ago, a strong wind storm took down a big chunk of one of the main branches of the trunk. He had it sawn into boards, and stickered it in his barn. After we met, he parted with some of his treasure to let me build this kitchen. There is one more wall of cabinets, hope to have a picture to share soon.
