you are right naomi

it’s been like this my whole carrier (46 years)

boss : “the plumbers , electricians , air conditioning ,
and roofing guys won’t be here till they get some
parts shipped from the factory’s”

carpenters and woodworkers : “we need
to get more wood to finish these projects”

boss : “why don’t you use those shipping pallets ,
make them work , i don’t want you guys leaving .
tear down that shed , and use that wood”

Interesting article and as you say, many of us have been recyling wood for years. If not for aesthetic value then definately for cost effectiveness. :)
