Dear Lee Valley,

I really enjoyed the article about using reclaimed wood in the most recent newsletter (Volume 7, Issue 3). I do a lot with pallet wood. A friend of mine works at a firm with a ton of old pallets, and I get them for free. A lot are no better than firewood (useful for heating my shop!), but some are really great wood.

Reclaimed wood

The items in the picture are just a couple of the pieces I've made from this "junk" wood. I have to use purchased lumber for the back posts of the rockers, but the rest is repurposed. It's really fun discovering the beauty locked away in this stuff. The tabletop of spalted maple was really a shocker!

Keep up the good work.
