I'm in love with building things, and I've made the best discovery. I was searching for recycled or reclaimed wood, and I came across a recycling store. It is like the Goodwill of home improvement stores. I found some scrap wood for a good deal, and I made this, an outdoor storage bench. It's not completely recycled wood. They didn't have all right sizes, but it still brought the cost down a lot.

My next project cost me about $6. I found a shipping pallet on craigslist. I did by two new 2x4s, but it's mainly free recycled wood. I followed these basic plans, but I altered quite a bit to minimize the tearing down of the pallet.
