It has been a while since I have posted here and I apologize. Been quite busy keeping the 2 website and Facebook current. So, now, as I promised earlier, I will update the BLOG more often and keep interesting articles and tidbits coming. I also urge you to participate. I want you to ask questions, post photos, start a dialog. I would like this BLOG to be interactive, interesting, and active so without you, I cannot achieve these goals. Please participate and together we will make this a fun and interesting BLOG.

OK, today I want to tell you about a new item I just brought into the shop. It is a secretary/desk. All in pine, and the desk lifts up for storage. Plenty of more storage in the top and bottom. Great country look.
This has been refinished a while back. Condition is Good! I date this about 1880 judging by the cut screws, and original square nails. Please feel free to ask questions about this piece.

Look at all the storage this piece has. Books or collectables in the top, quilts, plates, etc.. in the bottom.

Desk Open
You can see that this desk opens to keep all your supplies stowed away. There are also little cleats that pop up and when you lower the top, it remains "level" with the remaining surface giving you a level writing surface.
I have shown you everything. There are a few repairs and replacements that have taken place over the last 140 years in order to keep it functional and looking this good.
Please let me know if you need any more information on this piece,
