Explore the vast possibilities of designing with reclaimed materials

About this Event

Join us at Good Wood Nashville to explore the vast possibilities when designing with reclaimed materials.

Our panel of makers, designers, & business owners will share their expertise of curating materials from history and how they move through the design process to create new one-of-a-kind pieces!

We all want to be more “green”, and this panel will help architects, designers, and entrepreneurs understand the process and expectations when using these materials.

Hosted by Good Wood Nashville

Panelists

Dave Puncochar, Good Wood Nashville, Founder

Raised here in Nashville Tennessee and return to Nashville in 2010. And fixing up my hundred-year-old Victorian house in East Nashville I found the need to find old reclaimed floors. That experience helped create good with East Nashville. I live in Nashville with my three children.

James Worsham, Handy Dandy Productions

New York > Florida > From there I ended up in Nashville, designing and executing window displays and installations for Anthropologie. I discovered my love of weird materials used in over the top yet elegant design, and decided to share those skills with the world at large. I left my dream job to start Handy Dandy Productions, and I've never been happier. I'm a tinkerer who burns through sketchbooks just to get these crazy ideas out of my head. I spend the rest of my time designing dream spaces in my head, learning about the most random facets of social and ecological sciences and thinking about food. I love living in Nashville with my incredible husband and our (female) dog Walter.

Sarah Milkie, architect, Remick Architecture; Director of Interior Design at Remick Architecture.

Milkie has a master's degree from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and spent several years working in New York as a bar and restaurant designer. She also has designed retail and hospitality spaces in NYC and Nashville. She specializes in residential, multi-family, small commercial and hospitality work.

Will Newman, owner, Edley’s BBQ & Pancho & Leftys

Born in Memphis, TN. Grew up in McMinnville, TN. I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a History degree. Which meant I had zero skills. After school I opened a Marble Slab Creamery in Peachtree City, GA then another one in Franklin, TN. After selling the Marble Slabs, I graduated from the University of Alabama Law School. Opened Edley's Bar-B-Que in 2011. We have five locations. Opened Pancho & Lefty's Cantina in 2017. Will open the second location in September.

Betsy Littrell, RA

As a licensed architect and realtor, Betsy believes design can - and should - elevate and delight communities with direct environmental, economic and social benefits. In the Middle Tennessee region since 1995, Betsy returned to Nashville after graduating from University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Architecture and Minor in Business Administration. She immersed herself in the design scene working at the Nashville Civic Design Center, Smith Gee Studio and Manuel Zeitlin Architects. Wanting to influence the built environment more directly, she got her real estate license to join the front lines of 'the market' and provide value-added services to her clients. In August of 2019, together with her husband Austin Littrell, she started Maypop Building Workshop, a budding design-build company in the pursuit of sustainable, design-driven construction and real estate development in Nashville, TN. Inspired by Tennessee's state wildflower, nicknamed the 'maypop', they're working to be aggressively resilient, ecologically restorative, and generally delightful. Betsy is Board President of GROW Enrichment, a nonprofit developing Nashville's first public food forest, community and resilience at Two Rivers Park. She is on the steering committee for South Nashville Action People and on the Building Healthy Places committee with Urban Land Institute. She dreams big, laughs loud and is continuously pushing the envelope for equitable and regenerative development.
