The coffee table was more of a challenge because it was so heavy and bulky. In 2004 I came across an article written about an artist who was using reclaimed wood from the Old Faithful Inn's renovations to craft frames. I contacted Rich Holstein and a friendship grew from that first phone call. I ordered an 11x14 frame for a Valentine's day gift for Dave. After that, we purchased a few more frames and had him make us a mirror too. Last year, I brought one of the 11x14 frames and the mirror with me; this year I brought the other 11x14 frame to hang in the family room alongside the other pieces.
The coffee table was a custom piece that we had Rich make us back in 2009. He finished it and we picked it up from his workshop after one of our Yellowstone vacations. It is made from different sections of the Old Faithful Inn wood and the underneath side he has detailed where each section came from. The top has 6 tiles inset depicting an old photo of the Old faithful Inn from years ago.
The coffee table traveled well to Montana and our contractor gave us gals a hand and we got it into the family room AKA "The Yellowstone Room". It looks right at home in here and is just the right thing we needed to make this room complete!!
