My wife and I belong to the Sourwood Gallery in Black Mountain, NC. We are also members of the Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League (SVFAL). One of the SVFAL board members asked my wife if I could build them a reception desk for the new Red House Gallery and Art Studio facility (also located in Black Mountain, NC). The idea of a reception desk in an art gallery was intriguing at best. After coming up with a design, I contact a couple of my suppliers and waited for the wood to show up. i should have known that I was in trouble when the wood for the desk top arrived in three UPS packages and the lightest package was 66 pounds. By the time I planed, jointed, routed, sanded, and finished it, the baby weighed in a tad over 325 pounds.
