Holiday Projects Open House at Re:Store Today (11/17)

November 17, 2012

The Cheap Bastard has been so busy preparing for a Thanksgiving holiday visit of the relatives–you know, cleaning and the like–that he forgot to mention this open house on making salvage holiday projects today (11/17) from 11 to 3 at the Re:Store, at 1440 NW 52nd in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Here’s a description of the event:

What’s better than a gift you had a hand in making yourself?
Stop by to meet Eberhard Eichner, lead designer of our REvision Division, and James Taylor Designer/Builder for the Seattle store, as they show how to take the mystery and trickiness out of easy-to-make salvage holiday projects. Ask questions as they creates functional pieces right before your eyes – such as framed chalk boards, coat racks, serving trays and gift boxes. Take home instructions on how to make your own, or buy the samples they make that day!
Check out the REvision Division online, including free do-it-yourself videos and more photos:http://www.re-store.org/revisiondivision

Eberhard has spent 30 years as a professional finish carpenter, furniture builder/repairman, a long-time reuse practitioner and all around creative guy has prepared him perfectly for this role.
James came to the REvison Division by way of 10 years on our field crew where he removed materials and learned the trades in reverse. In his pieces, his aim is to be mindful of the craftsmanship that the first set of hands put into this piece of wood or metal.

Go today and avoid, well, the Christmas rush.
