Kate's Folly - Kate Barfield

Miguel and I built an 11' by 11' garden room from salvage materials in Maryland. A friend called it my Folly, because the building had no purpose. I had no building experience, but received a lot of advice from friends and professionals.

Balustrade and Stairwell Redo - Lynn Marie and Ken Kobylanski

We purchased a house that was built in 1850, it was abandoned and damaged. We saw the potential in it, and decided to take on the challenge and bring it back to life.

The Keystone Industrial Coffee Table - Jason Matukaitis

I made this table as an homage to Pittsburgh's steel-industrial roots, and the design was heavily influenced by my time spent working in mills as a welder. Live-edge top was milled on a band saw from an air-dried slab of reclaimed Black Walnut which I acquired in Central Pennsylvania.
