Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

A significant part of my process involves pressing recycled or found objects into unexpected service, as with the coffee table I built from a hodgepodge of new and old: neighbors' discarded shelves and glass tabletop, left-over lumber, hardware, paper, wallpaper paste, and polyurethane, wine rack kits, and a CPU dolly I found on the street. Its wide-but-not-deep dimensions are tailored to the space, and its structure is functional, incorporating storage space for books, my laptop, and a case and a half of wine. Plus, the whole thing rolls out of the way when it's time to open the sofa bed for guests.
