An oak sapling, about 20 feet high, that we had to take down was too attractive to simply discard, so I dried it for a year, then cut it down the middle,preserving the irregular curves of the trunk and setting them off against the rest of the material, which is all walnut.

Allan Parachini built me 2 custom alder kitchen tables of the exact right size & shape that I ordered (I could not find this in any stores). He finished the job ahead of schedule and charged a very reasonable & fair price. The work done was of high quality and the tables are stable and look beautiful. He was extremely pleasant & easy to work with. He communicated with me frequently concerning both the design and the construction of the tables. He fully lived up to his commitment and delivered the tables to me personally. I give him a 5-star rating, my highest ranking. The tables look great in my newly remodeled kitchen. Thanks, Allan!
