    The spider web inlay design in pewter featured on this page is a close up of the table in the picture to the right. This table was skillfully restored by Graham Rhodes as commissioned by Dean Zimmerman, curator of the Western Reserve Historical Society for the James A. Garfield National Historic Site located in Mentor, Ohio.
