This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Sofa Table made with iron cresting

     I had this old cast iron trim piece for a while and thought it would look good as a sofa table. 
     The iron piece (also known as "iron cresting") came from the Hennessey Cutcliffe Funeral Home, 35 Longworth Ave., Charlottetown - the house was built in 1876 for Premier Lemuel Owen and became a funeral home in the 1960s.  
 The table measures 36" high by 43" wide.
     Below is a photo showing the "iron cresting" trimming the verandah roof - it would have been originally on the tower roof and main roof.  The photo cf. http://www.city.charlottetown.pe.ca/searchaproperty.php?propid=2250
