Working in this industry has truly made me appreciate the quality of all-wood, handmade craftsmanship. Particle board and pressed wood has replaced mahogany and dove-tail drawers and beautiful stained finishes. I especially love when I see one-of-a kind pieces made without the idea of mass production anywhere in sight.
One of my favorite hand-made pieces that i've come across recently is this AWESOME table by Sally Ry and Lala...The whole piece is made from salvaged wood! It takes true talent to take lumber, about to become mulch, and turn it into something so incredible!
