Was I going to throw a recalled crib, a crib deemed unsafe for a baby to sleep in, into the landfill?

All this perfectly good wood stock into the dumps?

A reciprocating saw and a rubber sledge sitting atop a pile of recovered wood.

No, I don't think so.

A much smaller pile of scrap wood.

Well, at least not all of it.

A man's hand with a wedding ring and a bloody pinky finger.

A little effort, a little blood, and greenhouse gasses are saved.

Stay tuned (Ha! All of you!) to see what these nearly castoff bits become.
