LostArtPress on InstagramVisited @sarah_marriage at @aworkshopofourown in Baltimore. A huge and soaring space with a great mission.@mollybrown.ink made this print of the Welsh Stick Chair that @welshchairmaker has built for his book. It’s glorious and is now hanging at our storefront.Cherry work counter. 38" H x 78" W x 24” D (96.5cm x 198.1cm x 61cm). Except for the slab top, the case is fully frame-and-panel construction. Behind the two doors is one adjustable shelf. The asymmetrical drawer layout was “borrowed” from a Mt. Lebanon Shaker built-in. Not only is this a really nice design, but it’s a handy work counter in the kitchen, or a sideboard and serving counter in the dining room.
