This boardroom table is for one of our respected clients, Jan at White House Designs.
It's made out of 100% reclaimed and salvaged timber that was destined for the dump... the tree itself was located in Fraser Valley, BC. Every piece we have is different. We reclaim usable timber, mill them into slabs and or dimensional cuts, transport (in our biodiesel powered trucks), kiln dry them, cnc them flat, and finish each piece according to the specification of each project... saving them from the burn pile while rejuvenating them into newly re imagined piece's for homes to enjoy...
Filmed in the fast paced moments of staining, this piece captures Danny in the process, which is over almost as quickly as its starts, as he lays on the first coat. So grab a coffee, throw on some headphones and enjoy the moment...

Syracuse University faculty Bob Wysocki, Jeff Karson, and Dan Curewitz demonstrate the physical flow of molten Basaltic lava.
On April 25th 2013 an eclectic team of earth scientists, geologists, and artists gathered together to perform an experiment. The experiment consisted of creating lava, pouring it out of a kiln onto a bed of sand, and studying it's flow. The basaltic rock, specially shipped over from Wisconsin, was heated to over 1000C using natural gas. When the lava was first poured onto the sand, it was extremely hot and orange in color. As it began to slowly flow down the sloped ground, it's color quickly faded to dark red, then eventually black. Even at it's coolest points, the lava was still over 800C! After the bottom layers began to harden, the warmer layers on top still slowly flowed and created folds and wrinkles. Once the whole body of lava was cooled, it began to contract and crack. Large cracks formed in the middle, and little flakes began to fall of the edges.
