We love finding craftsmen who make furniture of solid wood. We love it even more when that wood is reclaimed, thus reducing waste and deforestation:

That's what the folks at Eastvold Furniture in Dennison, Minnesota have done with the "Holy" Credenza. Made of solid Douglas Fir, the piece does not try to hide the flaws in the reclaimed wood, but rather celebrates them. The result is a texture of darkened holes covering the front of the credenza.

The "flaws" appear to be nail holes, which one might instantly jump to fill and cover up. But the idea of letting them show is naturally elegant.
