!--paging_filter--pAfter just a few minutes inside stronga href=""Plank Grain/a/strong (International District, 666 S King St.; 206.659.9884), the pleasant whiff of wood hits you./p
pInside the slim storefront, which officially opened last week, is a workshop in the back where Erick Waldman and Nick Vaanderingspannbsp;/spantransform old-growth lumber (harvested from local warehouses and buildings) into dashing modern furniture. (It's also where arty wood covers for iPhones and earphones are fashioned for another creative enterprise,nbsp;stronga href=""Lazerwood/a/strong.) You can purchase a Plank Grain table (starting around $1,300) or chairs right off the floor, or custom order a piece to fit your particular space and taste./p
