Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! 2017 is right around the corner and bridal shower and wedding season will be here in a flash!
If you are in need of a bridal shower, wedding, or a belated holiday (!!!) gift and are looking for something unique, consider supporting local furniture maker, Kirk Decker of McClure Furniture Works, located in Broome County.
I've had the pleasure of knowing Kirk for two decades and have fond memories playing with the Decker kids at their family farm. Kirk is a self-taught craftsman and over the last several years, has really honed his skills. He truly has a gift for wood working but I'll let the photos speak for themselves...
Look at that wood grain on those cheese boards...and those rolling pins!
I know quite a few bakers who would love to display them in their kitchens.
These bud vases are a personal favorite of mine.
And if you are looking for something really special to, say, put an engagement ring in and give it to the love of your life, look no further....
This wine glass caddy would make a great bridal shower or hostess gift.
And for the kiddos, durable hand-made toys that don't require batteries...every parent's dream.
Kirk makes each piece himself in his workshop at the family farm. Most, if not all, pieces are created with locally sourced wood and are very reasonably priced.
If you are interested in learning more (or having a custom item made - whether it be a jewelry box or fine furniture; if you can think it, Kirk can make it - trust me!), please visit McClure Furniture Works or call 607.242.9015 or 607.237.6484.
p.s Kirk made a John Deere-style tractor rocking chair...just because he can.
It's really unbelievably cool. Check it out on his facebook page!
