This simple but fun table is made from reclaimed Douglas Fir [2] beams, which were collected from buildings in Los Angeles [3] that were set to be torn down. Neatly stacked, the ‘hollowed out’ gaps give the end table a slightly lighter feel, while the intersecting pattern provides a playful appeal reminiscent of the game Jenga. Viesso [4] produces this table locally in Los Angeles, and it’s preserved with linseed oil and a matte low-VOC finish.
