client/intern experience

Clients come from across the country for this truly unique
Montana experience. You’ll start as clients and end as friends.
Two black walnut trees shaded our property for some 60 years before falling to old age and harsh conditions.
Al helped us transform these trees into beautifully handcrafted furniture. Thanks to his vision and talent,
our family has handsome tables and mirrors to which we have a strong sentimental attachment.
Al preserved the story and beauty of these trees, which will now, as indoor objects, live on many more
years. He made the project rewarding and exciting, and his skill and creativity are inspiring.
