Yesterday I made a big delivery to an Island in Maine. (When I post information or images from a customers house, I never mention names or exact places to protect the privacy of my customers.) It sure is fun, though, to be able to see where my work is going. And it is rare that I can actually get a decent photo of the furniture in place.

I had intended to stay on the coast for the night but all of the hotels were closed down for the off season. So, I hit the road again and arrived home in the wee hours of the morning after 15 hours of driving. My new, used Dodge Grand Caravan did a great job on the country roads that connect central Vermont to central Maine (you can get there but it ain't easy). It got 22- 24 miles per gallon and I think I could have fit 12 or 14 chairs in it as well as the pencil post bed. We furniture makers do learn how to pack a vehicle.
Enjoy the sun,
