What comes to mind when you think of leftovers? Something you pull out of the fridge and throw together when you don’t feel like preparing anything else. This can work when feeding your children, but certainly not what you’d serve when you have company or a special party.
CustomMade woodworker Brian Mcalpine of Eternal Furniture & Design thinks about leftovers in a completely different way. Making use of the shorter cut-offs from other furniture made in his studio, he’s created a collection of clean, minimalist, high quality hand-made furniture called the “Leftover Collection”.
These Leftover Side Tables are put together like a big puzzle, each piece working together to form a visually appealing top. The base is made of modern Ash with a natural oil finish.
Mcalpine takes pride in the fact that every piece of furniture is unique, and designs are influenced by the wood itself. He hand selects his wood, looking to highlight the grain and natural features of each board. He likes to showcase the natural defects in the wood he chooses, keeping with its organic nature and making no two pieces the same.
