Louisville-based woodworker Ben Aroh crafted this series of magnetic, wooden states as an obvious, yet playful place to hang everything from keys to paper-clipped notes. Each state is sanded, stained and finished by hand using Pennsylvania Cherry, a durable hardwood used in traditional American furniture design.
