Withers & Grain / Adam Johnson
Adam Johnson is one of the finalists in Ketel One’s “A Gentleman’s Call” search for an innovative idea worth $100,000.

My friend Andrew recently started doing a similar thing, building beautiful tables for friends of ours from old doors. Upcycled furniture seems to be a big trend right now. Watch the video below!
