Flipping through the channels the other day and caught this. Seems these two guys take junk and do stuff with it than bring it back. What bothered me is they took this old dryer and made it into a desk. What bothered me is they took this nice looking teak and used on it. What a waste. You know I would have traded them some oak for that teak.

Chad, you're looking in the wrong place for the stuff....
Find an area near you that disposes of former givment stuff after a long contract period...
They're getting smarter these days, but the worker bees get metal desks etc, and the phds etc get mahogany or teak, and carpet on the floors...When the contract comes to an end the old furniture must be sold and whatever funds come back goes to the givment....for instance, north of Fairfax Va is a warehouse that stacks them up....and I bought several solid teak and mahogany desks for 15 bucks each, they wanted 5 for the chairs but I don't need chais.....lotsa solid wood....
