An abandoned bowling alley finds a second life in this beautiful series of furniture by LA-based designer/woodworker William Stranger. Crafted from reclaimed strips of wood salvaged from a local defunct Tava Lanes Bowling alley, the collection springs to life in a variety of forms including a series of wall hangings and a low coffee table.

All of the pieces in Stranger‘s Second Life project were made from pieces of salvaged wood that would have have otherwise made their way to the landfill. Whether these materials were sourced from felled trees or the remnants of an old bowling alley, each piece in the collection is inevitably unique, and might just make you think twice the next time you walk by a demolition site or see a stray piece of lumber. The Second Life collection is currently on display at the Fifth Floor Gallery in Los Angeles until November 14th.

    We may be demolishing an old bowling alley. If so would you be interested in the lane materials? What dimensions should they be dismantled in. Please e=mail to discuss.

    This is actually gorgeous, I wouldn’t have known it’s origins without reading about it first. It’s a lovely piece of designer furniture in its own right which is wonderful.
