A simple gift of a handmade wood console table has turned into a business for Amy and Doug Golenz of Alpine Blue Home.
After the two were married about 25 years ago, Doug made Amy the table out of reclaimed wood, and it has traveled with them as they moved across the country.
Friends would ask for one, so Doug would build it for them, Amy said.
Now, they have turned that talent into a business in the Evergreen Design Center on Meadow Drive. That original console table was the basis for what they call their classic line of furniture.
