Can you store things in them? yes! Can you sit on them? you bet! can you use them as end tables? for sure! what about a coffee table? of course! Basically these cubes are only limited by your imagination.

They’re made from 100% reclaimed wood (from the rebuilding exchange) and finished with tung oil and a hand-burned blackening process . Now… here’s where the fun part comes in…. we can put almost any graphic you’d like on them! do you have a favorite poem? or sweet image of some amazing place? yep, we can put it on these cubes for you. Just contact us and we can give you the parameters. We can also do custom graphics for you… or make the cubes sans graphics if you are a minimalist.

This awesome industrial floor lamp was crafted out of common materials to make a one-of-a-kind piece. The poured concrete base and the angled gas pipe compliment each other both in form and material. It stands about 6′ tall and is finished with a 60w antique bulb that is left exposed. Turn it, twist it, use it as a huge paperweight/desk lamp… it will look sweet no matter what.

SOLD!

This is the second iteration of this wine rack we have done, the first having been submitted for a competition/auction at the Living Room Realty and Rebuilding Exchange charity event…The requirements were very simple: Design and build a wine rack out of reclaimed materials, provided by the Rebuilding Exchange. It should hold five wine bottles in any orientation that allows the cork to stay wet. Almost too simple really, with so few restrictions where does one begin? It becomes an exercise in form and fabrication. How to make an interesting shape through a simple construction process.

We started by imagining a simple C-shaped module, mitered out of pieces from our single 2×12 board. Each module would hold one upside-down bottle and one wine glass if vertical, or two wine bottles if mounted horizontally. The “C” profile was glued up as one long extrusion, then chopped into five pieces and arranged in a shifted pattern, hinting at the fact that they were once one but still expressing each individual bottle/glass module. The form can be mounted on the wall in any orientation still allowing it to do its job. The douglas fir wood, already dark in color from decades of dirt, was charred on the inside with a blow torch, a little homage to the wine barrel I guess.  We think the satin finish really shows the texture of the original beam subtly and beautifully.

5 bottles, 5 glasses, that’s one bottle per person, right?
