margaret puckett: sustainable childrens furniture design


Margaret Puckett of Corvallis, Oregon, won the Collins Wood Award for her "Tower of Shelves." Her childrens design piece was made entirely from pine mill byproducts pulled from the scrap from the Collins Pine Sawmill in Chester, California. She used short pieces and small scrap with defects such as blue stain, knots & cracks. It is an amazing design using low-value material and transforming it into a high value wood product utilizing the whole tree.
