JR and Dan at the Philadelphia Furniture and Furnishings Show! These tough looking salesmen were responsible for getting us there, selling Artisan work, and sharing what Covenant House does for youth in Philadelphia and DC. After many long days and late nights of preparation, we had a fantastic show! Many thanks to the show organizers, and especially to Dan for getting us involved in the first place. Great Job, Dan!

JR looking relaxed in the booth- He had to stoop down a little bit in order to fit in the frame. I had to use a speial "tall person" lens just to get the shot.

Here's the Artisans crew that came along to Philly - L to R: Larry, Gordon, C, Sheri, Angie, Ced, Steve, Kevin, Nik, and Jerome. It was a great day, a balance of meeting woodworkers from across the country and getting out of town! We hope to get out more often!

A widebelt sander is in the house - thanks to Stanley Associates and Bob Hughes!

Thanks in part to Stanley Associates, the shop now has a 24" widebelt sander! Bob Hughes (hiding behind Gordon, 2nd from left), a Staney employee, has connected us for the thrd consecutive year with a generous contribution from the Stanely Volunteer Program. The woodshop has recieved over $2,250 in support from SVP for student tools, woodshop technology, and now major machinery. Many, many thanks to Stanley Associates and volunteer Bob Hughes!

These miniature versions of our full-size occasional tables (pictured are a telephone table in mahogany and a walnut coffee table) were made by volunteer Deborah R. Deborah has created a miniature hall table in cherry and a maple side table is in the works! We will be bringing these "salesman samples" to market with us - who knows they might not last long! Thanks, Deborah!
