Constructed using reclaimed pine & hemlock, the intention was to create a piece with a worn, industrial feel. The boards were resawn & minimally finished so as to leave, as much as was reasonable, the original saw lines & wear marks. The suspended hemlock squares were dovetailed & held in place using coated steel cable, & the base is welded steel tubing with a matte black finish.
