Green Building

Green is durable not disposable. I use only the finest quality materials available, starting with the wood and the finish, all the way down to the drawer slides, hinges, screws and glue. Good material combined with good craftsmanship is a simple recipe for quality. I build things to last.I think it’s common when talking about building furniture with recycled or sustainable wood to instantly think of coconut palm or bamboo. That stuff is neat, but it all comes from China. Local urban timber means wood from Pinellas County.

I have ready access to local urban timber, river-recovered old growth timber, storm-felled, salvaged structural timbers. these woods are usually lighterknoht pine, cypress, live oak, cherry, and cedar. We also see rosewood and other rare varieties from these sources as well.

Industrial chemicals are bad for your health. Until recent years, the less toxic alternatives to traditional finishes and adhesives were also of significantly lesser quality and difficult to work with. Those days are gone. The market is still dominated by cheap Chinese imports loaded with formaldehyde and other dangerous VOC's. I use only U.S.A. manufactured, LEED certified panels for cabinetry, which are far superior quality, formaldehyde-free, and made using timber taken from managed forests. In addition, all our projects are finished with Greenguard certified waterbourne lacquer.

Reduce Recycle Reuse Ever since I was a kid I would scavenge offcuts from construction sites to take home and make into shelves for the basement, a workbench, skate ramp, etc. I am now salvaging offcuts from millwork and turning them into cabinetry and furniture.

I always have some finished pieces of recyceld wood furniture ready to ship on etsy, check it out and place your order today.
