pick a bottle off the table peel the label tell a fable

The editors at MY NON-TOUR DIARY are proud owners of a new table, handmade by Matt Turrini. The fir wood comes from a small sustainable farm on a ridge in northern Cali. Matt drove his truck up there to choose the wood then drove it back down to Sausalito where he worked on it in one of the boatyard work spaces. By looking at the grain of the wood Matt can tell u what kind of weather conditions the tree was living in from year-to-year. He pointed to a specific area of the table and said "Whoa! This was a really hard winter for the tree!"
And here's Matt's darling partner, Joy Turrini, proprietess of the Low Tide Club in Sausalito.
Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy wrapping things up.
