BringingThe beauty of the outdoors into your home


We are excited about this Guest Spot Article, because we have 2 items on our Wish List, that once we are out of the doggy house of medical bills and car mechanic bills, we'll be on the move for these two items (by Oct my wife demands).

As I was chatting with Ken, who is from Rustburg, VA, it turns out he's a workaholic that is also expanded to making Monster Inspired Furniture.

MountianManGeorgeReviews would like to personaly thank Ken for his time, telling  me all about his passion that's spread out pretty far into his life. I've enjoy researching his product lines of both of his stores. And this truly is a wonderful craftsman who has talents, I can only dream about.
