I'm a sucker for a good piece of wood. When I was studying sculpture I hunted down a shop out in Cranberry that sold thick pieces of cedar wood so that I could have a specific look for my sculpture. It was large and unbelievably heavy but I somehow managed to wrestle it into my car. The smell of cedar took over as I drove home; I couldn't wait to get that thing onto a band-saw.

So when I came across Brooklyn To West and read about Ariele's wood projects I was hooked. Her tables are GORGEOUS. And now I want to make a bench like hers, which is one more reason on my mental list of why I need a studio space. That, and because I don't think my roommates would like it if I bought a pottery wheel and turned our dining room into a makeshift ceramics studio.
