A Second Life

Brian Slocum, managing director of the Wilbur Powerhouse and Design Labs, salvaged wood from fallen trees on Lehigh University’s campus during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. He stored the nearly 300 year-old wood knowing that someday there would be a use for it. Slocum, Michael Moore and students Deanna Shepherd and John Obiedzinski spent the summer building two conference tables for Williams Hall, giving the historic wood a second life.
