After just a few minutes inside Plank Grain (International District, 666 S King St.; 206.659.9884), the pleasant whiff of wood hits you. Inside the slim storefront, which officially opened last week, is a workshop in the back where Erick Waldman and Nick Vaandering transform old-growth lumber (harvested from local warehouses and buildings) into dashing modern furniture. (It’s also where arty wood covers for iPhones and earphones are fashioned for another creative enterprise, Lazerwood.) You can purchase a Plank Grain table (starting around $1,300) or chairs right off the floor, or custom order a piece to fit your particular space and taste.
