In this day and age, recycling hardwood timber is really important. My latest project involves turning old Ikea solid oak worktops into shelving for a family based in North Berwick. They recently had a new kitchen installed and instead of chucking out their old worktop, they have opted to turn it into seven floating shelves and a bathroom worktop.
This kind of job is fantastic as the wood has seasoned for years in their home so will be very unlikely to move.
I have not wasted a scrap of the wood, turning the remainder small pieces into door stops, cutting boards and small shelves.
