Category: Wood

Wood is a generous product, and abundant in many forms, from old furniture to waste from demolition or construction sites, to leftover edges from board production, wood in woodlands, and many more. It is mostly quite easy to find, leaving storage as the biggest problem.

The difference between recycling and upcycling could be seen as using used wood in new tables (recycling), and upcycling, in which wood is decomposed and turned into a new
product altogether (if the material created can be reused, for instance). But the definitions remain fluid. There are many examples, however, of wood projects in which discarded pieces are cut up and transformed, thus adding lots of economic value to them.
