A hand­some new tool for trans­form­ing ma­te­rial sam­ples into cov­etable fur­ni­ture

from stone, tile or tim­ber into new works. Now, Mel­bourne’s Josh Car­mody has in­tro­duced a sim­ple tool that makes it easy for fel­low cre­atives to repur­pose ma­te­rial oth­er­wise des­tined for land­fill, specif­i­cally sur­fac­ing sam­ples. The Rem­nants Clamp – a cir­cu­lar piece of hard­ware equipped with key-headed thumb­screws and a slim white-oak or wal­nut leg – can grip any slab up to 30 mil­lime­tres thick, turn­ing it into an el­e­gant piece of fur­ni­ture. It’s avail­able in two lengths – 50 or 75 cen­time­tres – that form cof­fee- or con­sole-height ta­bles, re­spec­tively. The me­tal com­po­nent comes in brass (pic­tured) or alu­minum. A two-sided model joins two slabs, of the same or vary­ing thick­nesses, to cre­ate a sin­gle sur­face. _ERIN DON­NELLY josh­car­
