Chestnut Coffee Table: A true Carpenter Story…
My husband and I were renovating our 1850 farm house when we came upon some beautiful Chestnut beams that were part of the house. We had to tear them out as this was a section of the house that we were adding onto and pouring a new foundation. We saved the beams in hope of doing something with them. We just werenʼt sure. I asked Matt if he thought that the beams could be salvaged in any way. He took them to his shop to check them out. Shortly there after he called us up with some great ideas. He would be able to make a beautiful coffee table for our living room made out of these beams. It was very exciting to think these old ratty beams full of old nails and holes had potential. And it was Matt that saw it! A short time after Matt delivered us our beautiful table. It is so really amazing to think this olde wood that once held up our home was salvaged to now be the centerpiece of our living room. Matt is a true craftsman.

Our happy clients
We hired Matt at Livin Roots WoodWorks to slab out a tree for us. This tree has been on my family’s property for more than three generations. It a beautiful 58″ tap hole sugar maple that we have been tapping for years. Matt came to our place, set up his mill, and let us participate where we could. He was on time, extremely professional, he did a high-quality job on such a one of a kind piece. Once the slabs are dry, we CAN’T WAIT to turn these into beautiful tables with Matt’s help. He is truly incredible with the work he does. I highly recommend him for your milling to furniture needs.
Several years ago we unfortunately had to have a beautiful, old Maple tree taken down that was directly behind our house. For thirty years we had tried to save it by having cables and threaded rods added to stabilize it. Sadly disease took hold that was beyond the tree’s ability to fight off. The trunk of the tree rested on our property in sections after we had cut what we could for cordwood. We wanted to honor the tree and not simply let it rot on the ground but could not find a solution at the time. We were determined, though, and eventually enlisted the help of Kurt Jillson (some may know him from his work with small machines at Brown and Roberts, Brattleboro) who shared in our determination and also possessed a chainsaw with a bar longer than ours! He did a magnificent job carving out several large slabs and I completed the work by cutting several smaller ones…..
