In the spring of 2003, we moved from Denali Park, Alaska, to Gabriola Island, British Columbia so that Andy could attend a ship’s cabinetry school.

This Shaker-style hutch was his final project in August, taking over 100 hours.

Now it’s the anchor of our living room, housing the stereo and music collection.

It’s a joy to behold, and if you were to visit, I’d recommend you run your hands across it…

So smooth.
