"Hole" a scuplture by Laurie Palmer made from RX lumber

"Hole" was created by Laurie Palmer, chair of the Sculpture Department at SAIC. Laurie used RX reclaimed lumber to create this work in progress where each layer is built as a separate ring and then laid on top of the next while gravity holds them together. It was based in part on research into mining and uses of the underground, as well as geologic time and the slow construction and fast destruction of the earth.

The ReBuilding Exchange is pleased to see all those carts of lumber magically transformed. We will keep you posted on the progress of this installation.

Thanks Laurie, this is truly fantastic!

Wine Tasting Table by Candid Wines made from RX materials

This wine tasting table was created by Damien Casten of Candid Wines, a local organic wine distributor. Damien used all RX materials including; old growth lumber for the frame and industrial glass for the table top. Even the floor beneath the table was created from reclaimed 1x10 roof decking. Many thanks to Candid Wines for using so many RX materials.
