Wood like planks, poles or dunnage bars travel across the oceans. During their voyage they are bleached by the sun and sea, polished by sand and stones, and finally arrive at their destination.Driftwood Magnet Boards ($140+) is the second life of these weary travelers. The boards are photographed and dated where they're found, and the information is added to the logbook that comes with every piece. Back at the shop the boards are cleaned, dried out and branded with the geographic coordinates of their discovery site. That's not the end of their story.In order to make these works of art useful, powerful magnets are sunken into boreholes, which allows the boards to be used to organize keys, knives, tools, basically any of your magnetic object. So if you're looking for something original for your home or garage, Driftwood Magnet Boards are a great option.
