Reclaimed Wood Mixtape Coffee Table by Jeff Skierka Goes Into Production.

This unique handmade coffee table has been getting so much buzz that Seattle-based designer/craftsman Jeff Skierka and his partner, graphic designer Roslyn Hyde are working as fast as they can to get it into production.

The Mixtape Table is a 12:1 scaled replica of a cassette tape turned into a functional coffee table. Made of reclaimed maple, walnut and lucite, the 47.25″ x 30″ x 5″ handcrafted piece has a protective 3/8″ plexiglass top. The table is completely reversible to feature sides A and B.

The first prototype and one of a kind table has been quickly gathering attention across the internet, with many fans requesting its production.

Jeff and Roslyn are responding to the demand with future versions which will be CNC machined out of high grade plywood (with a variety of ply combinations) and a glass top. Both plywood and handmade hardwood versions will be soon available.

According to Roslyn, Jeff is speaking with manufacturers with CNC capabilities, water jet cutters for the glass top, visiting local plywood and hardwood suppliers, among a list of other things over the next couple of weeks. He is planning on having a rough estimate for the plywood Mixtape Table by the end of the week. Jeff will also be creating 1 or 2 more prototypes as well. If you are interested in a hardwood handmade table, those will also be available to order soon.

Baby Cradle Becomes Two Rockers When It’s No Longer Needed.

Designer Martin Price, a 2009 graduate from Central Saint Martin with a First-Class Honours Degree in BA Product Design, came up with the idea to design and craft a baby cradle that when outgrown or no longer useful can actually be sawn in half to become two functional rocking chairs.

The result is surprisingly attractive – both the cradle and the rockers are elegant and attractive pieces, each on their own as opposed to looking piece-meal.

The project grew out of his research and dissertation about looking into people’s attachment to their possessions and understanding how they use objects to trigger memories of events and stories in their lives.

The piece was created in his workshop using ash wood with a foam mattress:
