Refurbished Beachy Adirondack Chairs

Remember my awesome neighbor that threw away his grill?  Well, he got such a kick out of the fact that we brought new life to it that he periodically began offering us some of his other "Junk".

Just before we moved, he cleaned out his yard and offered us these incredible chairs.

They needed a good power-wash and a little repair on one arm, but they were sturdy and ready for a new chapter as Chesapeake Beach Chairs.

Here they are AFTER:

Aren't the crabs cute?

    I've spoken on the phone with Jim Morgan and I'm just

    make money using his basic woodworking skills.

    He started his woodworking business with NO capital,
    a few shop tools, and a lot of nerve, in a small
    10x20 foot space and grew it into a 1,400 space in
    the first few months while still remaining as a
    one-person business!
