Wood upcycling project

A lot of people in our community talk about using waste pallets for building furniture and raised beds, but struggle due to the practicalities of getting the wood together and the time consuming nature of getting the pallets ready to use. We will build a network to receive larger quantities of pallets and waste wood, use our planer-thicknesser to make them ready to use and sell the wood, encouraging people to recycle waste wood rather than purchasing new. We will put together and sell flat-pack kits so people can build their own furniture with instructions to help and lend the tools to make it possible.
