I just finished this top for a local customer who will attach it to a built-in kitchen island. Although most of my IG posts show my smaller tables, I do make larger items (including dining tables, kitchen tables, pub tables, benches, etc.) for local customers. If you live in the Central California area, and you’re looking for a larger table, send me a direct message. I offer free delivery within 50 miles of my workshop. #ReclaimedWoodGoods #reclaimedwood #etsy #kitchen #kitchendesign #centralcalifornia #madera #fresno #merced #clovis #hanford #visalia #merced #oakhurst #coarsegold #tulare #basslake (at The Barren Badlands of Central California)

A Tarantula Festival? Yes, really! Who knew?!

There’s nothing I love more than serendipitously running across something different and fun. During my visit to Oakhurst this past weekend, I came across this cute town called Coarsegold. Situated in the California Gold Country foothills among the mighty oak trees, this tiny town has maintained its California Gold Country roots and feels like a step back in time.

Apparently, this town is also known for its Tarantula population. October and November are mating season here..and what better way to celebrate, than to have a festival!
