More often than not my projects are made entirely of salvaged timber. This of course is by choice, but last night while I was talking to a lady, my passion for furniture making somehow came up in conversation, and she asked me about what pieces I have made.
As I enthusiastically got into the conversation explaining my chairs, tables, kitchen trollies and alike, I mentioned the fact about trying to use only salvaged timber, with an almost concerned look she then went on to ask me “why?”
I quickly explained the views I have in regards to forestry management and how I think although it has come a long way there is still a lot of room for improvement and unless I know that the timber has come from either a responsibly managed and planned timber extraction (eg plantation) I wouldn’t feel confortable using it in my projects.
