Gil Stancourt says he'll put a light bulb in anything. Take one look around his studio and you'll believe him. The born tinkerer, who built his first lamp at the age of 12, has spent the last quarter century restoring antique lamps and designing original lighting fixtures, and in that time he's custom-made crystal fixtures, reproductions of cathedral chandeliers, and even art objects from repurposed items. Gil's specialty is bringing back to life antique lamps, which he can convert into more eco-friendly fixtures by retrofitting them to use energy-efficient GU-24 compact fluorescent bulbs and to not shine directly in the eyes of an endangered species that's trying to get some rest.

The lighting master shares his expertise in instructional classes, during which students learn basic wiring techniques and proper tool usage by constructing their own lamp from a wine bottle and other materials.

Drill bits twist, measuring tape unfurls, and saws chomp through two-by-fours in ACE Hardware, where shelves dangle with scores of tools and other home-improvement essentials. Wall pigment by Ace Paint and Benjamin Moore beams across the color spectrum as faucet parts and cabinet hardware retool aging abodes and jury-rigged time machines. Large appliances, such as Honeywell space heaters, Perfect Aire air conditioners, and Cadet thermostats, keep indoor air at a comfortable temperature. Outside, bags of seed and compost join charcoal grills to brighten backyard celebrations as rolling hand trucks heft heavy lumber purchases or prefab doghouses for socialite canines. Tools, electrical tape, and other handyman essentials round out each location's array of fixative and creative supplies.

American Shredding - Oakland may specialize in destruction, but it's in the business of protection. The licensed, bonded, and insured collectors understand that until your confidential documents are no more than thin, illegible strips of rubbish—they’re valuable and must be treated with sensitivity.

One way they get the job done is by shredding the documents immediately in mobile trucks. The collectors can also pick up the materials and shred them at their facility, a system that comes with a set of safeguards: documents are transported in locked, secured, and GPS-tracked trucks and destroyed within 24 hours. Furthermore, customers can choose a shred size they feel comfortable with, and all employees undergo background screening and drug tests. After the materials have been shredded, American Shredding - Oakland’s staffers haul the residue to local paper mills for recycling. They also offer hard-drive shredding for those who don’t trust their computers to self-implode when compromised.
