Block & Sons crafts beautiful iPad stands from local salvaged wood

By KC

What goes better with the sleek lines of an iPad than a rustic chunk of live-edge wood? 

Based on the work of the fellows at Block & Sons, nothing!  These Portland crafters sculpt beautiful stands for iPads out of local, sustainable wood, which are then finished traditionally with linseed oil and beeswax.

We love the juxtaposition of the uber-modern device nestled into the wild lines of the blocks. 

The blocks can be purchased via the Block & Sons website, Portland shop Beam & Anchor, and other fine boutiques around the country.

Here's a photo of the juniper stand:
