Recycling is really a good act of saving the environment as it minimizes the growth of mountains of landfills we have. LA based wood worker William Stranger is just another Good Samaritan to the environment with his wonderful creation. He had crafted a series of furniture that include wall hangings and a low coffee table that are all made from reclaimed strips of woods that are salvaged from a local defunct Tava Lanes Bowling alley. If you were to give a closer look at the finish product, you will never think it is made from reclaimed woods as it has the look of like made from a firsthand material.
