I build furniture from recycled wood and other vintage recycled material. I have been working Green over 40 years now, from before using recycled material was called Green. I am inspired and influenced by this used wood or urban milled wood.

Re: Building wooden bikes

As a Green (recycled) folk art furniture artist I was very impressed with these bikes.

Re: Beautiful furniture from reclaimed materials

I really like seeing the recycled wood projects, hope to see more. I have been doing Green before there was a Green, making me King of Green. For the past 15 + years I have built my art furniture business around recycled woods and vintage material. I not only use this material,I am inspired by it, it has shaped my inter-eye to see the possibilities, but Art should follow function any furniture needs to work.

Re: Partners in Craft: Harold Wood and John O'Brien

I often see things here that impress me but I do not take the time to comment and although I may think that a work is executed extremely well I do not see the art of the maker but instead great craftsmanship and the art of some other person or of another time. But here it is totally awesome.
