I thought I’d share how this really works...
I head off to the beach with my backpack, my dog, Grace, and sometimes my Grandpuppy Theodore, my college aged children.
I tend to get hit by waves, trip on stones. The beach is wet, sandy, messy.
I bring home piles of salvaged items.
Sort them by material, shape, size, color.
I gather, cut, plane, paint, and seal the salvage wood. And I still have all 10 fingers and toes.
After the sawdust settles, the materials salvaged from the beach are properly cleaned and sealed, by some miracle, I arrive at this...
This is not a glamorous process, but the results are so worth it : )
