  2. Contemporary Coffee Table Art made by Scott Williams. Set of six: $88

    Beautiful and functional art for your tabletop.  Reclaimed from an original piece of vintage signage that has been laminated to a chunk of 3/8” thick wood and backed by felt. The glossy wet look of these pieces really makes the color pop and seals in the design goodness; providing a waterproof surface. Stay tuned… more of these typography, sign, and found art based coaster compositions are due to arrive this spring at Opal Stackhouse.

  3. Coffee table made of salvaged materials by Aaron Klamut

    Klamut dropped off his latest piece this week. It’s a handsome coffee table! Boy is it solid. So many elements to this table make it truly unique. The base is salvaged Douglas Fir from a factory on Prescott Alley (Italian Village? Columbus, OH). It is a through-leg design, with the legs bolted to the frame - like I said, it’s solid. There are leveling feet for uneven floors. Underneath the 3/4” glass top is tongue and groove bead board from a porch ceiling on W. 1st Ave (Harrison West? Columbus, OH). A signature is burned on the bottom by the maker. Yep, it’s a gem, and it’s in the shop now. $750

  4. Oak side table: by local master woodworker Tarik Yousef $450

    This Oak side table arrived in the shop last week, and it is quite stunning. Like, stop you in your tracks, stunning. Like, I’m walking across the room to do something very important, and one glance at the spalted grain, cracks, swirls, and knots and I am totally lost in the table’s story, stunning.  

    The Pin Oak beam is aged 10 years. Salvaged from the reject pile at the local mill, shaped to be perfectly square, and treated with a non-toxic oil and wax finish.
