Brandon Biederman has created this spectacular table. He took steel angle irons from a scrap yard near his father's house in mid west Wisconsin. He cut the glass from a larger, broken piece that had been previously used as a dinner table and the carpet came from some old carpet samples.

We are very excited to feature Sarah and Joseph Belknap some crafty customers of ours, Sarah and Joseph work hard to incorporate reuse material into their artwork and have used many materials from the ReBuilding Exchange. Recently they've made a house sculpture you can see at sarahandjoseph.com . It is made of items from our shop! They also have some fantastic house decor made out of used building materials they sell on their etsy store. Awesome job Sarah and Joseph!
