WHISTLER SHOW Burns Jennings, right, made a key-card return box, above, which led to an exhibition of his furniture.

As well as found wood or wood that “drops by,” Jennings also follows a hydro pole protection program on Bowen Island. Any trees that come down because they are in danger of falling onto a hydro line are converted into furniture via his mill.

He uses large pieces of driftwood from the beach, too.

The result is, to say the least, sculptural.
