ryan can do pretty much anything.
he made a beautiful table out of bowling alley lane over the weekend!
i'm so excited about it.
i've wanted a nice, long table for outdoor dining for a couple of years.
the one he made sits 12.
last fall, when we used bowling alley lanes for our kitchen counters,
ryan had in mind he would use the left-over wood for an outdoor table.
the cool thing about the table
(other than the fact people used to bowl on it)
is that all the wood is reclaimed.
the edges are made out of wood from our friend Denise's old fence.
the legs ... i can't remember exactly,
but the pieces of redwood used to be part of our house in some way.
ryan cut wood, sanded, stained.
i love that he has big visions,
and the wherewithal to achieve them.
i can't wait to see our friends and family
gathered around the table saturday night,
as we celebrate my ordination on Sunday!
