Justin and Emily moved into their new home, an old farmhouse on the plateau of the flight 93 crash site. The old barn was decrepit and had to be demolished. It was built in the 1920’s, and is entirely of wormy chestnut. Justin found a reclaim contractor who salvaged the wood and cleared the site, all at no cost.
They needed a kitchen island, the contractor provided some choice planks, and I built the island. The shelf on the bottom is white pine reclaimed from a 100 year old horse barn (I ran out of the chestnut). Drawers are poplar. Finish is shellac and tung oil. The top is solid granite which extends on one side to accomodate stools.
