|Gone Fishin’ … For Building Materials|
I know I know we missed a few newsletters…like July, August, and September…let’s just say we took the summer off. I enjoy spreading the word about we are working on here with you guys, however a mix of vacation, visitors, buying a house, and a few tight deadlines took me away from my keyboard quite a bit this summer. That being said, we expect to keep you informed through the rest of this year on a monthly basis as we have been.
|The Collaborations Continued|
This summer we welcomed a friend into our shop who has some wicked welding skills. Of course we had to collaborate on some projects while he was around. You have seen a few of the trellis and maybe other items we have built together, but for the grand finale we took it a step further. Below are some photos of some tables we just finished as a part of built from waste collection. I’m biased, but I think they are the perfect mix of moderns, elegant , and industrial. In addition, we finished another trellis, and a few door “boots” to use as display holders, and a customer built an awesome door with our materials. Our welder is off to travel the county and spend some time on the beach, but those skills are always valuable so I guess we are searching again. If you know of anyone who likes to work with reclaimed materials, please pass them along.
|Built From Waste|
These tables come as a part of our “built from waste” series in which we fabricate finished goods out of our reclaimed materials. This makes it easy for our customers to support our mission even if they aren’t in the market for building materials. Each table comes with a fully welded frame and a cultured marble top. These tables are for sale, get a hold of us if you’re interested.
|Product Highlight – Styrofoam Coolers|
We have yet to find a consistent home for these styrofoam coolers that are generated consistently. I always laugh when I see similar items for sale at local grocery stores and how much ground we still have to cover in the circular economy, however we don’t have the retail side of things to sell them that way. They are in great shape, used once for a few hours. Clean, and ready to be used again for keeping something cold or even shipping something.
We are generating about 25 per month.

|If you have a spare hour and a half this month we wanted to share with you this great documentary by Netflix and David Attenborough. David spent his life traveling the planet to show us things we had never seen before. This documentary is his witness statement to what he has seen and how life on our planet is changing. Stunning cinematography and a better message.|
