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.

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.
