Spalted Maple Coffee Table

Long sought after by woodworkers, spalted maple has very unusual lines in the grain made from fungi growing in the tree.  This coffee table is a great example of this natural occurance. Due to size and characteristics we chose to pair it with our X-base that is made in house. It is 24" deep by 37" long and 18" high and is $1,800.00.

Business We Love : B-Line

Another great Portland Business that is also a fellow B-corp is B-line. If you have driven around downtown you have probably seen them riding by. Founded in Portland, OR in February of 2009, B-line specializes in sustainable delivery to businesses large and small. Substituting conventional trucks and vans with a tricycle, B-line takes care of downtown and nearby delivery needs while at the same time reducing CO2 emissions (by 54,000 pounds since 2009). Since they've been in business, B-line has made over 10,000 deliveries, traveled over 12,000 miles, and transferred around 400,000 pounds of organic produce. This company has just begun to make a difference in the world.

Spaces We Love : Creekside Cabin in Calistoga, California

Every month we love to feature spaces that both are invotive and are style beautifully. This month's featured space was originally a 1937 summer getaway with one bedroom and one bathroom, but with the help of architect Amy Alper, an additional space was added to capture the existing home's historic feel. See some of the photos of the exterior and interior below.

Business We Love: Bamboo Sushi

One of The Joinery's favorite sushi restaurants to go to in Portland is Bamboo Sushi. We not only like them for their delicious traditional and signature rolls, but for their recognition as a sustainable company with what they serve and how they operate. Bamboo Sushi, like The Joinery is a certified B Corp. All of the fish Bamboo Sushi serves comes from an area where fish are plentiful and healthy and caught by avoiding any sort of damage on the ecosystem. All of their meats come from local ranches and are grass-fed, hormone free, and free range.
