House of Childers: the Shop and the Story

Even though the sun continues to make an appearance each day, the air has a bite in it as the year begins to wind down. In his small but cozy shop, Chief Craftsman David Childers adds a log to the little woodstove in the corner. Both shop and stove were recycled from what they used to be - a rustic shed and some old cast off pieces of metal.

He turns his attention back to the wood he was working with so intently a moment since. Using the natural contours of the wood and the beautiful grain as a guide, he fashions a brand-new design for House of Childers.

Glancing at the clock, the Craftsman realizes it is lunchtime, and carrying the newly finished shelf, he heads home - just a few steps away. His wife/business partner exclaims over the creative genius of her spouse and descriptive phrases begin to well up in her mind.

In the meantime, two little girls drag their daddy over to the couch with a stack of picture books. Lunch isn't quite ready yet, so he sits down, one on each side, and begins the familiar routine. Interestingly, some of his design ideas come from these very books! The most recent addition to the real House of Childers, another adorable baby girl, kicks and coos and smiles nearby.

When the Chief Craftsman heads back outside after sandwiches made on freshly baked bread, he puts his mind to one of the more challenging aspects of his trade - getting some good photos!

Back in the little house, all is quiet - it is naptime. The only sound to be heard are the tap-tap-tapping of computer keys as the description for "the latest design from House of Childers" takes shape on the laptop screen.

The "happily ever after" of this story ends with an elegant end table or a rustic shelf finding a new home elsewhere in the world - and the Chief Craftsman and his family enjoying their simple way of life because of their good customers. Maybe they'll celebrate the latest sale with some homemade apple cider...That is, until little feet come running and little hands hold up their favorite books to Daddy.

It must be reading-time again.
