Cherry cutting board -
Below is another slightly smaller cherry cutting board (on the concrete counter tops that Benjie made for us). One day (many many moons from now) we will finish our kitchen and I will devote many posts, many words, many pictures, many toasts over big tasty meals to the event.

These are made out of cherry (the darker ones) and cypress (the blonde ones).

Just look at this place, could it be quainter? Don't you just want to go inside and look around? What is it?
It is Fitch + Company, a new woodworking furniture gallery in Inman Park (a section of Atlanta that reeks of personality and is well shrouded in ivy).
We have just heard that the gallery opening will be October 3rd. We will put up more details of the event when we know them.
And this fellow that Benjie is talking to is Ryan Fitch himself. I (this is Becky as usual) have only met Ryan once, but here is what I know about the fellow:
- he is a woodworker (too obvious? did i need to say that?)
- he has been scavenging the metro Atlanta area snagging furtniture for the gallery and making friends
- he has one snazzy gallery that he should be proud of
- he rides a snazzy motorcycle

They chose the fabulous Ellen Kochansky to take on this project. I'd like to go on about all the fun meaningful beautiful community projects that Ellen has done. But that will have to be an entry unto itself at another point.
Ellen has graciously come to me to partner up on this one. This will be a set of panels that you see being made below. They will be supported by concrete bases. The panels will hold the arrangements that Ellen composes made from the contributions of the company's employees.

Becky here again. My blogging this evening is delinquent. My pictures are not inserting where I want...so I have done this over and over and blah - they are very mediocre posts. Anywho, this is my last picture….not because the table/tray is not farther along….but because Benjie was so busy making it he forgot to take a snap shot. What’s he doing? Building stuff or something?
This is Becky again. This time my woodworker husband has an actual woodworking project. It is usually the norm...but in the last month or so...the woodworker has been metalworking. So here are the beginnings of the project started earlier this month. It is a coffee table/tray for a potter named Jill. Anyone who has been in our home knows that we have a special place in our hearts for potters. Everyday things should be art. Art should be used and loved everyday. Woodworkers and potters have a lot in common.
