    40 years

    Seems just like yesterday that we got married. 11/13/71.

    We met in April got engaged in July and got Married in December. Love at first sight.

    5 daughters, 1 son and 11 1/2 grand children later neither one of us would change a thing. We would do it all over again.


    My wife has been asking for a coat tree for the past 15 years. I finally figured out that i better get it done.
    In keeping with the style of furniture we have I saw a picture in an old book about Shakers and copied the design. I put the chamfer on the edges just to spruce it up a little bit and installed the legs with sliding dovetails. I also put coat pegs down low so the grand kids could hang up their own coats. Far from fancy woodworking but it was fun and the wife (Marilyn) loved it..
