Adam Johnson is one of the finalists in Ketel One’s “A Gentleman’s Call” search for an innovative idea worth $100,000. Johnson and his company Withers & Grain take waste wood from old water towers and buildings and turn it into furniture. 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!
Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
