"I've spent some time studying Hepplewhite and Chippendale and traveled around to antique places to look at furniture," Besides a love of furniture, Bob also has an extensive architectural background. A native of upstate Delaware, he spent 14 years in ar- chitectural design and was the project manager for the construc- tion of Dover High School at the tender age of 23. He was also instrumental in the building of several high schools in September 26 - October 2, 1997 and tapering. Craft work is another facet of the business. Blue herons, carved from salt-treated yellow pine. Honduras mahogany candle stands with shaker hurricane lamps and other tasteful and deco- rative items are also created by the Berrys. Bob said he obtains wood used at his shop from different places, including saw mills and lumber yards. Little goes to waste, since cut- off pieces of wood left over from bigger projects are often used in their crafts. Different types of wood and a wide variety of finishes lends each piece its own distinct personality. Bob said he doesn't mind talking about the wood and finishes with his customers. "We use different types of wood for different effects," he said. "They [customers] are buying a piece of furniture that will hope- fully last a lifetime." Mary Lou does the painting of the furniture and is an extremely talented craftswoman, saidBob. "She doesn't know how good she is," he said. Currently, the Berrys are gear- ing up for Rehoboth Beach's Sea Witch Festival, where their work will be on display and for sale.

Design-wise, Bob said he's studied the classics. The attention to detail in the Berry Patch's reproduction pieces is not to go unnoticed. All of the pieces are handmade from start to finish, including the dove-tailing Milton Continued from page 52 people town !" Lambly and her husband came to Milton 18 months ago when their quest for a home near the wa- ter brought them to southern Delaware. Through visiting her daughter at Dover Air Force Base, they came to like the area, and re- al estate prices were more attrac- tive here than in New Jersey. "We found prices reasonable, and we like that Milton is away Business After Hours set for Oct. 30 The Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce will hold Business After Hours on Thursday, Oct. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Sir Guy's Restaurant & Pub.

The new executive secretary comes into the chamber of com- merce position at a time when the organization is rebuilding and scheduling a full calendar of tradi- tional and new activities. As she carries out the regular office rou- tine of membership mailing and providing information for visitors, she also is working with commit- tee members as they prepare for the Pumpkin Festival and the Hol- ly Fest. As she learns things such as the nature of the Fall Bass Tourna- ment and how to find the name of the winner of the hot air balloon ride, she finds that the good nature of those she works with makes the job fun and interesting. "We laugh a lot here, and I've found that what you have to do at a job is not as important as how well you get along with the peo- ple," she said. "It doesn't matter how hard or how boring a job may be, if you like the people who work with and enjoy them, you're going to be happy."
