The mission of Worthy Woodworking is in the tag-line: “Turning the discarded into items worthy of love.”
If we as a society properly reclaimed all of the construction lumber heading to the landfill and the bonfire every day, we wouldn’t need to cut down another tree for twenty years, if ever.
Nick Offerman, “Paddle Your Own Canoe”
The things we want can be made from materials which have already been culled, milled, processed and delivered into the world around us. All we have to do is look around, squint our eyes, tilt our heads, take a beat and use our creativity to see how the items we want are already there in the items we don’t want.
I can’t tell you how many people swap a desk for a newer, “better” desk from the same large blue and yellow box store the old one came from. If they took some time (patience is key in this game), looked on Craigslist and used some creativity they could have had a piece worthy of their love and care for years to come.
The mission of Worthy Woodworking is to help connect-the-dots between the discarded items littering landfills and curb-sides everywhere and the people who would love them, but don’t have the tools, aren’t exactly DIYers or just don’t have the time. Some people don’t want to scour the internet looking for a funky piece of furniture which needs love and some creativity, so Worthy Woodworking helps bridge the gap and be the customer’s DIY-side to help turn discarded items into something they will love for years to come.
So, we band together with those whom want to help keep the landfill’s less full, keep our design and furniture history intact, all the while expressing their personality through the beloved furniture items around them.
