NYT profiles Meyer Wells, carvers of those lovely Starbucks tables
Posted by Melissa Allison
You know those righteous wooden tables that keep showing up at Starbucks shops around Seattle? The ones quaintly referred to as "salvaged wood" from a tree blown down in a storm?
The guys who carve them, Seth Meyer and John Wells, were profiled in The New York Times on Sunday.
To check out some tables in person, visit Starbucks at First and Pike, University Village and the top of Queen Anne. I meant to have a photo for you by now, but have been busy writing about voter measures to privatize the liquor business and Jones Soda's hopes for WhoopAss.
