Crawdads Workshop -Father's Day Gifts

Saturday, June 9th, 1-5 pm

Ryan Thompson will be in the store with gift ideas for Father’s Day!  Ryan loves to salvage forgotten pieces of American history tuning them into bookends, coffee tables, lamps, shelves, and more!

“Crawdads Workshop is an eclectic combination of my many interests. Mostly I create wood/metal coffee tables, steampunk lamps, bookends, shelves, and quite a few things in between. I love the process from start to finish, of salvaging forgotten pieces of American industry and putting them back into use, whether that is restoring the very tools I use, or reimagining obsolete fixtures of Cleveland. Few things are as thrilling to me as finding the perfect building materials. I’m a regular at local auctions, garage sales, and scrap yards, on Craigslist and the curbside. Getting home and having the right tools to mill, plane, cut, turn, grind, and sand items into their final form is my second great thrill. ” – Ryan Thompson
