From the bar at The Grocery to the community table at Black Tap Coffee, there's a good chance that the piece of wood you're resting your cocktail or latte on started out somewhere else in Charleston, maybe at a junk heap or construction site. Woodworkers like Capers Landrum Cauthen, Bryan Deel, Stephen Wain, and Michael Moran take piles of scraps and turn them into fantastic pieces of furniture, prettier than anything you could get at Williams-Sonoma or Pottery Barn. Wain describes the unique pieces he creates as "perfectly un-perfect," and we couldn't agree more.
