The top of this table is a slab of kiln dried cherry. Our 16 year old son,Trent,refinshed the cherry and designed the metal base. The combination of organic with industrial is a nice relationship.

Repurposed Bits and Pieces take a Fanciful Spin

Fanciful bits and pieces of leftover hardware have come together for the soulful purpose of spinning your memories,posting memos or perhaps displaying vintage postcards. They could be a unique holiday centerpiece or hold pictures of the bride and groom at a wedding quest table. We will have them at Junk Bonanza!

Grinding Stone

Some projects tickle the soul,this was one of them. The patina that revealed itself after Lee cleaned off years of hard earned gunk was special. This stone deserved to be elevated as art.

The inspiration for this creation started with the propellor that a very talented jewelry artist (Devin Johnson;Makeshift Accessories) found for Lee. The propellor has been keeping Lee company on the workbench for months. After lots of special moments pondering each other this lamp is the artistic expression of the relationship between Lee and the propellor.
