The wood comes from building 84 of the Studebaker factory. It’s now being reclaimed in building 112, being turned into workbenches, keychains, and even pens. “When I look at it, I can see history. I can literally in a way feel how many feet, how many cars were built on this,” said Woodsmith Owner, Kevin Smith.
