Finding Those Reclaimed Materials
by Daric Gill
As a person who works with reclaimed materials, I get asked where I find my materials a lot. In fact, I was asked this twice today. Here’s how this question usually goes:
“I’ve got this project I was thinking about making…. If you don’t mind me asking, where do you find all of this amazing material?!”
This is a very flattering question and I’m more than happy to share in the reclaimed materials movement.
Having said that, I’ve found that there’s actually quite an array of motives and goals behind that question. This post will cover the right questions to ask yourself so that you can be on your way to finding newly reclaimed materials.
The Working Work Table!
Some tables are built for working. You can hammer, make a mess, & pretend that the drink you knocked over isn’t a big deal…
… then again, some tables are actually an expensive custom-built coffee table that is slated to sell at a gallery as fine art furniture. As you can probably gather, it was for this reason precisely that I decided to make a much needed addition to my work space: “The Working Work Table”!
