As the year comes to an end I want to share the project I worked on for over a year of my part in it and the progression from start at the sawmill where it was cut into 3 inch slabs, to finish this past November and placed in the new clinic . The wood was 150 year old black walnut from a tree that stood in front of the female seminary and had been kept in storage . Much thanks to Jay Young, BJ Foreman and Gina Olaya.
Was a great honor for me to do the project.
