Carpentry isn't generally seen as a particularly lucrative profession: just look at Jesus, who was the big guy's rightful inheritor, and still didn't have more money than God. For furniture from an artist who saw wood as a step up anyway: SquareD.
A Minneapolis-based shop from a former painter who figured that the homeware biz would be a tad more lucrative (apparently, it's actually "about the same"...), SquareD produces made-to-order modern furniture from reclaimed and scrap materials, meaning he's primed to compete on the most boring Junkyard Wars episode ever. The bulk of the catalog's devoted to rectangular, wall-mounted console/shelf units (ranging from 31"-60" long) that can be purchased individually, in a pair, or in a holy trinity, and feature dovetail joinery, aluminum-clad sliding doors, and craftsmanship he boasts is "heirloom quality", although they look so damn good you won't want to take them down, much less pass them down. Should your walls lack the room for even one console unit, there're nifty cedar planters made-to-size, a bench of solid ash from a construction site in Wisconsin, and a sleek side table pairing Baltic birch plywood and high-test aircraft aluminum -- just check that it's not from a Southwest plane before trying to rest your coffee there.
And for resting oneself, there's also a scrap-plywood, super-boxy chair that even he admits is mildly uncomfortable -- though if you're a carpenter yourself, you're probably a squatter anyway.
