The Coolest Stuff: Real Industrial Edge Furniture... April 22 2014, 0 Comments
Sometimes you'll run across something while browsing the internet and you'll think, "that's pretty neat". Occasionally you'll run across something while browsing the internet and you'll think, "that's really neat". Rarely - very, very rarely - you'll run across something while browsing the internet and you'll think, "THAT MIGHT BE THE COOLEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN".
At some point in the middle of 2013, I was mindlessly looking at stuff on Instagram, not really paying attention to anything I was seeing, and I came upon Real Industrial Edge Furniture. I immediately had one of those rare "THAT MIGHT BE THE COOLEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN" moments, and ended up spending multiple hours browsing through a seemingly endless product catalog of some seriously awesome creations.
The man behind these creations was (and still is) Justin Real. I reached out to him to let him know how much I admired his work, and he emailed me back in less than five minutes to say "thanks". We've been working together ever since.
Whether it be an amazing side table, a glass-topped i-beam coffee table, a sinfully-wonderful rolling media cabinet, a custom reclaimed wood top bar, an ash top industrial desk, or a rolling industrial entertainment stand, Justin just flat-out comes up with the coolest stuff you'll ever see.
He was kind enough to lend me a couple minutes last week, and I asked him a few questions in order to illustrate what goes into his process.

Thanks to Justin for taking time out of his day to answer my questions.
