Waste Wood Furniture

Shreesh Agarwal, Product Design Engineering

Reclaimed wood pieces are like enveloped letters. You sand them to open the envelope and find out beautiful lines inside.
I see dirty, mouldy wooden pallets lying around the city but what I fail to understand is why they need to be thrown away. So here is my first experiment in reclaiming the wood and turning them into a piece of furniture. Of course it takes a bit more effort in getting the planks out and cleaned before you could use them but these planks have a real character. They have cuts and bruises on them. They are not uniform looking as in the case of new wood. This is what gives the furniture more flavour, a story, a history, a conversation.
