Brooklyn based wood worker Ariel Alasko makes some nifty tables, but I love peeking in her work space. It's so rustic, worn and old looking. She built her studio inside a larger space. She framed and built the walls herself along with insulating, sheetrocking and soundproofing it.
Check out her cool blog, Brooklyn To West and you can also check out her living space in Design Sponge which is equally as charming as her studio.
