I make nice things for nice people out of things that would otherwise be thrown away. I am an "upcyclist" and work almost exclusively in used materials, wood, metal plastic and more.
You do not have to settle for what's in the store. When you work locally with a maker, you can get what YOU want that fits YOUR needs - for often less money than the marked up furniture in the fancy boutique stores.
Besides making things for customers, I am also vocal about environmental waste, living and shopping locally and changing the way we view materials via my work online, on YouTube and my podcast, Reclaimed Audio.
