road sign chairs

What was a road sign is now a chair. By Will Holman.

"I put together this sleek chair out of a recycled road sign and some salvaged pecan wood, materials that were all sourced within a mile of my Alabama home. The signs came from the local county engineer's yard, where they sat in a stack after twenty-plus years of faithful service on Alabama's rural roads. Pecan wood is a species of hickory, native to the American south. It is dense, tight-grained, and strong, perfect for furniture construction. The resulting chairs are low-slung, laid-back loungers; some were left un-cushioned for use on the back deck, and others were upholstered with either smooth or ribbed cushions for use inside."
