Owen, Sam and Anne-Marie took a little field trip last week to visit one of our partners-in-cabinetmaking-crime. They make custom cabinet doors at a zero waste facility right here in Metro Vancouver. By using uber-smart technology, they can plan out cuts so that almost no material is wasted. Any leftovers are either cataloged and stored for future use or, if too teeny tiny to be reused, recycled. This trip gave us lots of ideas of how to improve our own cabinet shop, and made us happy to be collaborating with such a cool operation!
