This is one of those projects you think will take a week or two and it turns into 6 months. It’s all reclaimed wood from local milling dumpsters (I aint afraid to dumpster dive for good wood!). The side panels are actually pallet skids that I resawed to a quarter inch…except the top two panels, I was concerned about weight being put on the top so I used quarter inch ply (from the dumpster!)
Now i sound like a bum but the area I live in has 6 cabinet shops, 3 lumber mills and at least 3 places that mill trim so you wouldn’t believe what I have found!
Everything I build is from reclaimed wood, I feel good about reusing something that was destined for the landfill to make something unique, beautiful and worthwhile. I like to think the tree appreciates it too!
