I recently built this hall table using material from an old maple coffee table that had been left outside rot in a pile of scrap behind a friend's shed. I purchased 4 used legs from the local ReStore outlet and cut the old table into new peices.

I also salvaged truckloads of pine from crates that the siding for Palomar Medical center was shipped in. All bound for the landfill before it becomes furniture.

There are plenty of opportunities like this out there if people would just take the time to look and use their imagination just a little bit. Great job of recycling!!
