My grandma has been living in the same craftsman house since she first had kids. That was over 70 years ago. She is now 93 years old and as sharp as a tack. When she first lamented over having a table that never quite fit, I jumped at the chance of making her a table.
I was thinking Greene and Greene with some marquetry and excellent ebony accents. But sadly no. She just wanted a plain ol’ ash table.
The kitchen is so small that two of the sides had to have benches made so the table can be pushed into the corner. It was so small that the two benches had to be cut at a 45 to allow them to fit under the table.
She wanted to pay me for my time….. I think my dad would climb out of his grave and beat me over my head with the tombstone if I did.
