First it was just an idea, and I didn't know if I could bring it to life. I wanted to use repurposed materials and add a lot of detail. After some rough sketches I decided I was going to build it or lose some fingers trying. After much trial and error and plenty of learning along the way, the idea finally came to life and I am very proud of the results. My objectives were simple; it had to be solid enough to last a lifetime, made with as much recycled materials as possible, and completely original. I believe I have accomplished that.

  • This design is amazing! It's great that you were able to turn so many recycled materials into something completely new and original. Really couldn't have turned out better!

  • Wow. Just wow I want one of these. Are the two framed pieces made from the same wood? Looks amazing.

  • BEAUTIFUL. The amount of detail is really impressive. I really like the long drawers for blankets underneath. How many pallets did it take? This must have taken a long time to put together.
