Spent the day working at the Comanche Creek MillWorks http://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=AwrTcck01j1Xo1sATsEnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTEyMG5sYzNhBGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjIwMDNfMQRzZWMDc3I-/RV=2/RE=1463699125/RO=10/RU=http%3a%2f%2fwww.comanchecreekmillworks.com%2f%23%21about%2fc14xv/RK=0/RS=cI2ahPU5JS2WBFNtHQJt_oEOdCk-, a place where even the trash has a beauty all its own. We're currently building tables that consist of old institutional wood tables cut in half and then joined to a new table section we are crafting out of beetle kill wood. The wood is beautiful and all the designs are each unique and interesting. The idea behind this project seems to be based on a metaphor for our own experience here in Byers, CO; we are academic students joined with the rural, the old and the new, mashed up to create something entirely new.
