As with most everything the Crows make, there is a story. Ed, the “Father of the Bride” and a wood worker, wanted to make something special for his daughter and future son-in-law's wedding. He loves projects, so in keeping with the venue of the wedding and his daughter's dreams for her special day, he decided he would hand make tables and benches. Ed poured over design ideas, local resources, and came up with a design and plan. He made a prototype table and two benches (which are shown here). Janise researched and experimented with many stain and white wash techniques and finally came up with a finish that was exactly what they hoped for.
The test was to see if the future bride would like the prototype and want to use dad's hand made tables for her wedding reception. She loved them, now Ed had his wish come true, a special project for his daughter's wedding day, 15 handmade custom farm house tables with benches, in a gray white wash finish.
We will post our progress of making the 12-15 tables and 24-30 benches along the way, so keep following us.
