Glenn & Julie Stephens' Furniture Display



2008-05-09 - Vester, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
GLENN and JULIE STEPHENS took advantage of a a pretty day and the traffic at Bob's Country Kitchen and General Store to display some of the handmade furniture he makes nearby. Mrs. Stephens is sitting in a handmade cedar loveseat, which is assembled with wooden pegs and is the favorite of most who stop by. Stephens said he likes the cedar, but actually preforms the imperfections and worm holes in the the same piece made of poplar. The Stephens are hoping to display there again, on Friday, May 16, 2008. If anybody needs to get in touch with him before then, his phone number is (270) 384-5046.
