When I started building my kitchen Lee Jesberger sent me one of his recipe stands to use in my new kitchen for when I cook, (maybe he could sense that I needed all the help that I could get in the cooking dept). It’s made out of birds eye maple, with rosewood and maple feet, (very pretty). It was very thoughtful and kind of Lee to send it to me, and I wanted him to know that I appreciated the fact that he did that for me. Thank You Lee!

Lee….What a good guy!. (That’s quite a recipe holder!) How’s the house project coming Robin? – we’re getting ready to start on ours this summer. I told the wife we could do our own trim if we had a shaper – she’s gotten pretty wiley over the last 30 years – not sure if she believes me!

Who deserves it more than you ? Lee’s recipe stand is beautiful…and is a great contrast to your black countertop.
All the best, Paul

John I totally agree!

Shroeder…....... Yea I really like Lee’s recipe stand he sent me, I use it alot…........... he house is coming along well, I added a new pic in the kitchen blog. I am sure you and your wife will do a great job on yours, it has been alot of work (I mean really hard work) but we have done well with getting along and getting it done….......we’re slow at it (5-1/2 years before we moved in and it’s still not completly done) but we don’t make a living at this either,..... so I quess it’s ok to be slow. Hey a shaper would be a good investment!

Well thank you Paul, and Lee’s stand does go very nicely in my kitchen, it makes my counter top look better…....don’t you think?

Yes Charlie…...........when dinner doesn’t turn out so good I can always tell them…......but look how pretty my recipe stand looks!! And they will forget alllll about that dinner didn’t turn out so well. Sounds like a good plan to me!!

Yesterday, Karson and I were talking about what a great guy Lee is and this is just one more example. The holder really compliments your work!

Robin I am so glad for you, you are yourself a fine person, I see a lot of exchanging gifts here making this LJ site even better and this is the way it should be.
The person that gives feels just as good as you receiving the gift.
