On Sweet Peach, a website that focuses on "scrumptious design from the South", comes this wonderful piece on upcycled vintage tailgates turned benches, an idea masterminded by Yesterday Reclaimed.

I always like career stories that start off with, "I needed a change from the corporate world, so..." Usually the story ends with that person taking a risk to follow their passion, to do something that feeds their soul.

That change of direction happened to the guys behind Yesterday Reclaimed of Culpepper, Virginia. Roque Castro, Curtis T. Hooch, Ryan P. Chachi, Kelsey C & Beth C. have found a common bond in letting go of stressful jobs in exchange for crafting cool stuff on their own terms. Their most popular creation thus far has been the Blue Collar Bench, made from vintage tailgates.
