When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade…When life breaks your chopping block into two halves…You make stools out of them!
The end result of a broken chopping block was a counter-height stool for Joe in the workshop, and a table-height stool for our oldest son, Asher. The beautiful maple split evenly to provide two seats, and a damaged cottonwood that we recently harvested provided all of the legs.
In staked furniture, the legs are driven into holes bored straight through the seat, and then wedged securely from the top.
Usually, only one wedge is used for each leg, but Joe fastened these legs with two wedges, to create the design of a cross on the surface. Just one more small opportunity to glorify God with the work of his hands!
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much…(Luke 16:10, KJV)
