It’s wedding season!

Not only is spring here but wedding season is here too. We built these cornhole boards for the bride and groom to have for the guests at cocktail hour. And better yet, they get to keep them for their own backyard!

We prefer to use the old barn wood boards that compliments the routed out design and the natural wood grain.


We add a touch of black paint to make the design stand out versus just keeping it the natural wood (although you’re welcome to keep it all natural).



If you need a set of corn hole boards for an event, wedding or just to have in your backyard for your next cookout just say the word! Feel free to send us your ideas on what you’re looking for and we’ll get you a custom quote. Purchase on Etsy. 

And a big congrats to Jordan & Leah!


We LOVE a mix of rustic with a pop of modern.

People love to send us photos of their living rooms to match their new coffee tables with their existing and current furniture. The beauty of mixing these two styles is that sometimes anything goes where you have clean lines with a touch of natural wood that as we say, “could tell a story.”

Here are some living spaces we’ve fallen in love with that you might love too and get some great ideas from….


There is nothing like a natural piece of wood furniture in a living space that has soft tones with a bunch of natural light coming in. It’s like a little slice of heaven.

There is no denying how popular our tree stump side tables have been this last year SO we decided to step it up a bit. After numerous requests from customers, we are now offering a trio stump coffee table in 3 different styles – Gold, white and natural.

Stumps will range in dimensions between  15-19″ H and 9-13″ D (dimensions in photo are 16″, 17″ and 18″ H). We try to leave as much character and detail as we can with each piece so it can show off it’s natural look with a pop of awesomeness.


Here’s a set of the white trio stumps…

White tree stump side tables

The beauty of these stumps is that they really can go into any home to add a fun pop of rustic that’s not too outdoorsy. If you’re looking for a different color other than white or gold, let us know and we can make it happen.

Custom Design – Woodworking

The new Rachela table design has become one of the most popular coffee tables at the shop. People often ask, “What’s the story behind the name?” Well, there is definitely a story behind it and here it is…

In 2012, we lost a family member, sister and daughter in an unexpected motorcycle accident. Her name was Rachel. Our lives were completely turned upside down from that moment on and since then we live each day as if it’s our last.

Rachel Bodi

The shop started after everything happened and launched in early 2014. Rachel had always talked about starting a shop or a bakery one day where she could work while bringing joy to others. After our original round coffee table was such a hit with customers we wanted to come up with a design that Rachel would be proud of and from this day on that we can talk about with others to keep her memory alive every day.

If you notice the design, it has a cross in the middle of it along with additional pattern pieces to complete the table. There’s a reason for that cross, it represents our faith and the only way we were able to get through each and every day until we see her again.

Some of you may have received one of our cards with an order. If you got this one….

That is Rachel. She was a life loving, crazy, humble, family lovin, food lovin and best friend to many who will never be forgotten and is as we say, “she’s getting the coffee pot warm upstairs for us.” For those of you who have lost someone, you know that pain. It’s not an easy road but somehow you find the strength to live each day to the fullest and know that you’re part of a club that nobody should be a part of. You are not alone my friend and our hearts go out to you because we know.
