We didn’t want the legs of this table to disappear under the large reclaimed wood top, nor did we want more obstruction to leg room than was necessary. Instead of using steel bar or tube, we achieved volume by designing with heavy gauge sheetmetal, bent and formed to a custom profile. The result anchors the space without feeling too heavy. The top is made of floor joists salvaged from a renovation at my shop.

Much more than the sum of their parts, these sleek dining chairs are made entirely of discarded chunks of plywood. Ragged and often flimsy pieces of common 3/4″ ply come together to create strong and incredibly light everyday chairs. The wonderfully random palette of textures and colors are an added bonus that comes with the humble origins of the materials. I’m looking forward to expanding this concept into a series, so check back for more.

This pile-o-junk was so neatly stacked, and so close to my shop I had to explore further. I found 7 equal-length planks with all the nails already removed. The downside: they were caked in black tar roofing membrane. I loaded them up anyway.
After months of considering the best way to remove the black stuff, I decided it would be better to embrace it. After scraping, smearing and smoothing the tar to my liking, I coated the planks with an exterior clear coat. The result is an indoor-outdoor piece with a unique blackened finish… and a story.

This street vendor inspired, collapsible table is just the right size to carry under one arm, so you can scoop up your merchandise with the other. 32×32 and 28 tall, made of salvaged, wide-plank douglass fir with just the right amount of wear. To see the Pop-Up Table in person peak underneath the merchandise at Big Things pop-up events.

Sometimes a guy needs a mobile, configurable wardrobe rack with adjustable, cantilevered shelves that breaks down easily and is light enough to transport… oh, and of course it needs to be fitted with a lighted sign. No problem. Whatever needs to be displayed the Double Down Rack can handle the job.
