During our work on the Norman School Lofts Historical Renovation, we spent a lot of time in the Midtown Home Depot on Linwood Blvd in Kansas City and got to know several of their staff members pretty well. During one of our visits, I struck up a conversation with a very friendly and helpful cashier by the name of Victoria. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that she had attended school at Norman as a young girl. I shared this experience with our team and they came up with the idea of using leftover reclaimed materials to create a special gift to Victoria for being so kind and helpful. Using wood from original doors, fixtures and floors, our team crafted a one of a kind cutting board and with approval from Kevin (Store Manager) we presented it to her.
