Take a break in the shade:
This beautiful redwood table comes from an ancient tree in Big Sur, CA in one of the oldest forests on the west coast. Several years ago Big Sur had wildfires that destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres and this tree was badly damaged. Sitting on the edge a cliff, the forest service determined to remove it before it fell and caused more damage below. Safely removed, it sat waiting for years before being rescued by a local artisan, Michael Weiss of Wine Country Craftsman, who gave it new life as this beautiful table for generations to enjoy.
