Quandry Design's Found Objects Furniture
You may not realize it, but I am a (proud) Texan. What that means to my steampunk aesthetic is that I like the "Old West" influenced steampunk. Firefly & Serenity? Love it. Wild Wild West? Cool. Legend? Haven't seen it, but on the list. (Are there any Western steampunk novels or comics? I can't think of any off the top of my head....)
With that in mind, I wanted to introduce some work by Quandry Design. Quandry specializes in high end western furniture, but the Found Objects series features a lot of reused technology parts -- old tractor parts, gear patterns, sprocket wheels, saw blades, and a brake rotor -- in a style that works very nicely as western steampunk.
