bowling lane table

by Grace Bonney

After reading through my submission box last night I realized today was quickly turning into an all-before-and-afters day. But you guys really sent over some amazing projects this week, so I couldn’t resist sharing some extras. This amazing table was created by designer and builder Gregory Wilcox of Corvus Design Build. Greg purchased a huge pile of old bowling alley lanes and used the wood to create a series of conference and coffee tables. I can’t imagine how cool it would be to work at something like this- and how hard it would be to resist rolling balls of paper down the lanes on the tabletop while working. I love that Greg kept the original shiny finish on the wood- it’s definitely a clever way to reuse and recycle. Thanks to Greg’s friend Julie for sending this over! xo, grace
