Millspaugh Furniture recently donated more than$14,000 of solid hickory tables, chairs and benches to the new tree house built at Angry Orchard Cidery in Walden.
The event is part of an episode of the Animal Planet program, “Treehouse Masters,” which airs Friday night, July 22, at 10 p.m.
When Millspaugh Furniture was approached by Treehouse Masters lead designer Tory Jones, requesting help on the build, owner Keith Millspaugh gladly obliged.
“It’s always nice to help our neighbors when we can,” Millspaugh said. “And it was a great experience working with the Treehouse Masters team. Tory came to our Walden showroom numerous times, working with us to pick out the best fitting pieces for the new tasting room. Being our furniture is handcrafted and made to order, we had to put this large project on the fast-track to meet production deadlines … and we did.”
When it came time to deliver, Millspaugh personally made it on set.
“It was exciting to be a part of the action with (host) Peter Nelson and Tory from ‘Treehouse Masters.’ They were very grateful for our donation and thoroughly impressed with the quality and style of the pieces chosen. For the episode, we filmed the delivery with them as they helped my son, Pete, and me load in the furniture as one of the final steps of the build.
“It was exciting to be a part of this local ‘Treehouse Masters’ build taking place right down the road from our headquarters,” he added. “We are happy to see this national company come in and utilize local resources. Plus our rustic line of solid Hickory tables and chairs are a perfect fit for Angry Orchard.”
