Make Furniture From Scraps
"I build custom furniture out of pallets and other scraps I find laying around. I sell them on Etsy.
. . . I'll build things like an "Adirondack" chair out of a pallet and sell it for $100 or $150 each. It takes me about under two hours to build something like that. All the material is found and free, I do occasionally have to buy a saw blade or screws, so there is a little overhead. I build stuff on the weekend, so if you average it out, I guess I'm making around $200 a week. There are weeks when I don't sell anything and others when I ship five chairs or tables or whatever I make out of pallets."
