Sturdiness has been at the business's core since the beginning, when Ellison and his wife had their first kids. In an effort to build a table that could withstand his youngsters' exuberance, Ellison—a former ad man whose hobby was building furniture—hammered together a 200 lb. table with a 3-inch-thick butcher-block top. Today, at Block and Crackle, he stamps his trademark top on an array of tables that are all crafted, painted, and distressed by mankind's original foam finger: the hand.
