    Hi!
    Love the content of your site!
    Awesome work!
    I’m a carpenter and I’ve just started a crate manufacturing business in Australia. It’s going pretty well. Would love to point people to your site for inspiration if that’s ok with you?
    Do you think you could put a link on your site for me?
    I’m trying to gather some more sites like yours for my site so if you have any recommendations please let me know. Keep up the good work!

    Nige.

    Absolutely none of this is recycling. While creative, it is merely reusing (or repurposing, if you like), but it is not recycling. Recycling is extracting the raw materials out of something like an aluminum can for instance. Reusing is good because you are not using more raw materials to produce something but it is nit returning the materials back into resources that can be used in something completely new.

    Don’t be a negative Nancy, Billy. :)

    Dictionary definition of “recycle” (Particularly definitions 2 and 3)

    re-cy-cle [ree-sahy-kuh l]
    Verb (used with object), recycled, recycling.

    1.
    to treat or process (used or waste materials) so as to make suitable for reuse:
    “recycling paper to save trees.”

    2.
    to alter or adapt for new use without changing the essential form or nature of:
    “The old factory is being recycled as a theater.”

    3.
    to use again in the original form or with minimal alteration:
    “The governor recycled some speeches from his early days.”

    I am so inspired by this post! I can’t believe that it is possible to make such beautiful and functional furniture of these old stuff like the pallets for example! Thank ou a lot for sharing these recycling ideas!

    Thank for your sharing. I read information very late, your article is closed but congrats to our winner. I bought Dewalt miter saw. It very good, I think I create anything that join contest

    Good idea. All the items are simple but very interesting and creative. I like wood working so much and I often do some things for my family. I think i’ll do some of your idea. Thanks a lot.
