About

Our project is about simplifying. At rePly we make exceptional furniture from salvaged plywood. We've made a lot of cool things and we're always looking for new ways to use our upcycled materials, but now we want to streamline our product line, work more efficiently and at the same time increase our productivity. This will help us to be more competitive and reach a larger audience via green retailers. We will create three distinct lines of furniture. To move forward we will need a larger shop space, better equipment and a greener approach for our in-house energy needs.

The Specifics

The new lines will showcase our three distinct styles:  Edge grain. variegated walnut, and rePly colors. Within each line we will have five to six different pieces to start. In addition we will continue with a few of our most popular home furnishing accessories (i.e. mirrors, clocks, lamps, coasters, and trivets).

The larger shop space will provide a much more efficient working environment and also allow for growth. In the larger space we'll also have room for some much needed new equipment, like a larger drum sander, a better jointer, better dust collection and a spray booth. We also hope to build and use an electric vehicle for our local transportation needs, including our salvage runs. Down the road our plans include solar to power our shop.

What is rePly?

At rePly we love to take what others discard and find a new use for it. Our main source of materials are local cabinet shops. They throw away a lot of plywood and we're happy to take it and give it a new life. With deforestation occurring at an ever increasing pace it's more important than ever to make the most of this precious resource. It's not easy to build furniture from scraps of plywood, but someody's got to do it, and we love it, so it might as well be us. We have several techniques for repurposing the plywood we salvage and over time we've learned what works and what doesn't.

Where does the color come from?

To get the look on our colored pieces we have developed a simple, but unique technique that brings out the color in certain types of plywood. We do not add any color to them. No stain, no paint, what you see is what is in the plywood, we just bring it out.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for us will be finding local retailers whose focus is on green, eco-friendly products. We've already established connections with potential online green retailers and out of the area green retailers, but keeping it local is more difficult as there are fewer options. This will change as green products become more sought after and we hope to be a part of that change.
