There is no greater satisfaction than being able to do with your own hands the things you need at home, if you are one of them this post will enchant you. The furniture we build is made from old platforms. When you build you have the option of choosing which wood to work with, we opted for these old woods, it is a way of contributing to our trees.

As you can see, the tables were very good, soon they will be in a new home providing a service to their new owners. We have reused a six pods, if we had not rescued these pallets, other trees would have been cut to build these pieces of furniture. It is incredible that with this small action, we have saved some trees from being executed.
