Native Americans used every part of the animal: buffalo hides became clothing and their sinew tied together arrows, which in turn were used to hold-up neighboring tribes for blue cheese, without which the buffalo's wings were just far too spicy. Using every part to make bada*s furniture: Barrely Made It.
Started by the Swedish craftsman behind much-missed "Ray at Night", BMI's an artisan furniture line constructed wholly from French wine barrels (and starting just now, local-brewery sourced bourbon barrels), whose reconfigured pieces're lashed together with their original metal straps (and recycled screws) for a final product made from 99+% re-purposed materials, so booze can save the world coming and going. To retain color/shape consistency, each piece is laboriously hand-constructed from a single barrel , which is thoroughly cleaned (though the lingering scent of its previous contents blessedly remains), then cut, sanded, routed, and reassembled into one of six large furniture pieces, all while never bending the natural curvature of the wood, which can lead to embarrassing emergency room visits. The catalog includes a shockingly comfortable lounge chair and separate 16" ottoman which ergonomically flows from the seat; a squat, wine-barrel-topped end table; a chest-high belly bar with 33" bar-stools; and the 20'' tall Asian-influenced concave bench, also what the Rockets have whenever the 310lb Yao takes a breather.
They've also just started making smaller pieces like a chess set with magnetized, hand-carved pieces, and a wine rack that resembles a Chinese Pagoda, unlike an Indian Pagoda, who's only interested in hunting the wiliest of animals: Gene Hackman.
