Wood Junkie is about to shoot up... your list of favorite inventive furniture makers! Mainly because it makes distinctive, curiously sexy, one-off furniture pieces from live-edged hunks of construction site-rescued wood. Stuff ready to cabin-up your crib includes:
Natural Edge Slab Wine Tasting Bar: It's a 40in-high, 60in-long creation with bug/worm holes (calm down; they've been evicted) cut from a 100yr-old storm-felled sycamore that was destined to be scrapped until Wood's owner said "not on my watch", mainly because it's very difficult to fit a 60in-long piece of wood onto any timepiece.
Marble Wood Serving Boards: Throw charcuterie/ cheese/ Shark Bites/ whatever on one of these custom-shaped heavy boards that looks like a paddle, so your guests will be forced to say "thank you sir, may I have another?"
Rustic Contemporary Table Lamp: This 40-watt bulb-burning area-illuminator boasts a cavernous base made from sections of leopardwood and red oak burl, plus a leaf-based shade that took three years to develop, or slightly longer than 35mm film. Remember that crazy stuff?
He's also in possession of an extremely rare reddish-brown slab that was found at the bottom of an African river; he says it'll make "a perfect coffee table", but he's willing to do whatever you want with it -- a pretty dope offer indeed.
