About Orchard Tables
The heart of our story is exciting!
Morgan Thulin says, “it’s with a ‘grateful heart’ I welcome you to our new orchardtables.com. Since taking over this business, Orchard Tables holds a special place in my heart for sure, as it is my passion to be making something beautiful for you, one piece of furniture, table, or frame at a time!”
Perhaps, it was Morgan’s parents that were eager to teach and to help him understand the beauty of nature, and to develop his passion for working with his hands; building houses, doing carpentry work, and developing his skills and craftsmanship in these areas. Today, Morgan is a skilled artisan and master craftsman, with beautiful workmanship displayed in his products.
Morgan says, “it began with my Dad helping me to find the perfect trees to start to build my first home, in Sweden. My wife, Helene, and I had recently been married and we needed a home. With limited resources, my Dad said, ‘Morgan, why don’t you build a house, here on this property that I own, and I will help you to seek out the most suitable trees on the lot for building. I will teach you how to cut timber, take it to the local saw mill for processing, and help teach you how to construct the house.’ “Wow! That seemed like a big job, but a challenge I was willing to accept with my Dad’s prompting and encouragement. It was a beautiful house built with lots of love and served us well in the early years.”
“As if we weren’t through with exploring our pioneering days, our last house in Sweden, before moving and immigrating to the USA, was to live in an interesting old log home. This log home had been originally built in the 1700s, and then around 1836, it was determined that the log house could no longer remain in its current location, so, with lots of effort it had to be moved, over a period of time – piece by piece – by horse drawn wagon. Each log was tagged for reassembly at its new site. When reassembled, the old log home had to sit and ‘adjust into place’, but finally was made beautiful and complete once again. It was an amazing experience to live in such a home!”
Morgan believes in a deep love for family, and has had exciting experiences as married and in bringing up four children. The whole family is also very gifted musically. In fact, their travels have brought them singing and playing various musical instruments throughout Scandinavia and the USA. Today, Morgan and Helene are still singing. This powerful duo brings a new touch to familiar hymns and songs with their simple, but unique sound. If you are interested, please check out this website http://thulinfamily.com
As you can probably tell by now, restoration and building are some of Morgan’s core principles. Over the years, this has been demonstrated in many ways, such as by his outreach to the local community as a residential contractor.
With his kids now grown – all of which are in the music business – Morgan and Helene currently reside in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
