Derek Greene prefers the word “salvaged.” He likes the challenge of finding something old and making it new again. “I don’t know about you, but I see more pallets standing in line for the dumpster than candles on my dad’s birthday cake. Many pallets are thrown into the trash after one use. I love woodworking so I think that’s the wrong way to treat a tree. I used the slats from several pallets I found to surface the interior walls of my shop.” — Derek
