Canadian twin woodworkers Jason and Lars Dressler are the Brothers Dressler, a custom furniture company dedicated to using salvaged and upcycled materials with an heirloom design objective. The craftsman pieces are truly beautiful, and no scrap from their creation goes unused. "Wasting material is taboo to us and we believe that with a little creative thinking much of our potential waste can be repurposed into useful and beautiful objects." The brothers turn the left over off-cut material from their furniture series into handcrafted jewelry and children's toys. Simply fabulous. [via Reuben Miller]
