ABOUT Construct:
The furniture of Ben Cheney, principal of Construct: Custom Wood and Metal Work, combines the inherent beauty and warmth of wood and the strength and industry of steel.

Much of the steel used are drops from large building projects, this material is chosen for 2 reasons, diversion from the waste stream as well a the aesthetic choice of scaling industry to furniture.
