From Seen and Inspired to Made and Cherished

In this post about my birthday, I mentioned that I would come back to that lovely table which was holding our new pottery.

While at Guédelon, we watched many artisans at work, including the carpenters. Farmer Boy declared that when we got home (insisted, in fact, that AS SOON AS WE GOT HOME, irregardless of that being 10 p.m.) J would help him make a stool. However, on the road, the idea morphed into making a replica of this table we saw at Guédelon:

And not to be outdone, Ti'Loup got to work on his own piece of wood, making lots of wood dust on the way:

The finished keepsake:


Well done, guys!
