(Reclaimed) Plywood

The latest in the Go Go Contigo Chronicles is that Brett Emerson has delayed opening, in part because he's going beyond local/sustainable food, all the way to local/sustainable furniture: "My table tops will be made out of Douglas fir that spent the last century as beams and floors in the old Levi Strauss factory ... My decision to have my cabinetmaker fabricate Contigo's counters and banquettes from oak wood reclaimed from an old Northern California barn is one of the main reasons we won't be opening our doors this month." And you thought the farm-to-table movement had reached its tipping point. [IPOS]
