The RE Store is building affordable, quality furniture from reclaimed materials.
A tour through the gallery reveals a wide variety of highly functional, stylish items. Shelving, cabinets, benches and chests are built from interior and cabinet doors. Outdoor accoutrements like planters and arbors are made from reclaimed lumber, doors, stair railing parts, salvaged hardware and more.

Who is coming up with all these great ideas?
Bellingham: Eberhard Eichner – Furniture Builder and Designer
With an extensive 35 year background in all aspects of custom woodworking, design and manufacturing procedures, Eberhard has been the creative force and artistic originator of repurposed furniture at The REvision Division since 2011. He has been transforming marginal, “orphaned” and discarded materials into functional and beautiful pieces. His work furthers the re-purpose process and empowers the community through education, design consultation and shared experimentations. Eberhard was born, raised and received his journeyman’s certificate in Berlin, Germany. He has been residing in the Northwest since 1978, in Whatcom County since 2001. He gives the credit to the foundation of his re-purpose skills to his family’s imaginative resourcefulness through necessity and fun.
Seattle: James Taylor – Giving New Life to Old Materials
James came to the REvison Division by way of 10 years on our field crew where he removed materials and learned the trades in reverse. In his pieces, his aim is to be mindful of the craftsmanship that the first set of hands put into a piece of wood or metal. He believes that one needs an appreciation of history, craftsmanship, quality and a general eye for the overlooked and hidden. Taylor’s primary role at The RE Store is in our field/salvage operations. REvision Division work is a reflection of what he enjoys in his day to day work, working with materials hewn and shaped by skilled hands long ago. His talents lie in finding what time, paint and dirt have obscured and turning this into something useful and desirable.
