While BMW is busy designing computer case concepts, Bentley has put its woodworking team at Crewe – responsible for the wooden interior trims of its big luxury cars – to work creating cabinets, tables and furniture.

Never fear though, Bentley owners, nobody is going to receive their Bentley without its walnut trim.

In an effort to stave off la-yoffs in these hard economic times, 140 of Bentley’s best are using cut-offs for their furnishings. The word is that once they’re finished decking out the Crewe factory’s reception area, the group will turn its sights to Bentley showrooms – and maybe even the general public.

Like Holden’s current plans for a rostered short week for its workers, Bentley’s move is a clever means of avoiding layoffs while the company works its way through the global economic crisis.

Thanks for the tip, Andy!
