I recently replaced an old love seat that had seen better days. I needed two hefty guys to get it out of the lower level of the house and investigated to see why it was so heavy. To my delight I discovered that the frame was solid oak. After several days of removing staples and such I had a box full of irregular shaped pieces of beautiful oak "scraps".
When the need arose to have a place to store wine bottles and glasses at the cottage I put two and two together. The sides and shelves are 3/4 inch oak plywood and the top and drawer front are Tamarack but all the facings, the base, feet and front uprights are recycled love seat.
My Scottish ancestors would be proud.
