As a wife and mother I put the care and attention into everything I make as if it were for my own family. Description: At Lavarnway Designs I am proud of my wood creations and enjoy delighting people with the perfect piece of furniture to highlight any area of your home. From sprawling farmhouse tables to delicately intricate dressers, everything is tailored to your needs and style. The wood for your furniture is sourced locally. The fine cuts, sanding, staining and staging are all done locally and with an eye towards personal service. You will be involved at every stage and I could not be more happy about it.

I’ve been working for days on this bathroom and it’s finally ready for all new plumbing. I bought a house built in 1820 and it’s time it has a true master suite. Grateful for my @hytestsafetyfootwear. I started with sneakers and had three nails go through the sole. After switching to these amazing boots, no more foot issues.

I have numerous projects in the shop, but the state they are all in don’t lend themselves to new or unique looking photos (also today is my birthday and we’re heading out of town). So for this week I am going to revisit some of my favorite builds. These two dressers I built for my two girls when they were born. The one on the left is for my six year old, Audrey. The one on the right is for my four year old, Regan. What do you think?

These boards are 16’ long. I have to build another workbench to be able to make this table top. It will be 4.5’ wide. I wonder what this thing is going to weigh? What do you think?

Who can guess the length of these boards? They’re going to make my largest build to date.

Check out this funky walnut leg. I’ve used my cutoff’s to help with the clamping process. Clamps never work on an angle very well. What do you think?

When joining boards for a top, I always check the perfect before I move onto the next one. What do you think? And what is on my shirt???
