Mr Klassen hand-picks each piece of wood from fallen trees near his workshop; only about 20% of the wood he sees makes the final cut.

Grayscale River Table

A subtle departure from his typical work, Mr. Klassen chose a smoke-gray glass for this piece instead of the blue glass he typically uses. It’s a great look for the super-modern home.
