Last Chance Redwood

A few years ago, John had a dream of being a furniture maker. He did a line of outdoor Adirondack-style furniture made of twice-salvaged redwood: he got the scraps from a salvage redwood operation and we further milled them up on an old bandsaw we bought at a school auction. We had visions of him making chairs and me doing upholstery. We even sold a couple of chairs through Mad River Gardens and sold an arbor through a contractor. But it was tough to make a living off of gorgeous chairs, so we gave up that dream.

But at least I have deck furniture.
