Cape May man dumpster dives for his wooden art | Living | pressofatlanticcity.com

Peter Henderer is a Cape May artist who takes his wood from homes and dumpsters to make his art at his studio Thursday Dec 14, 2017. (The Press of Atlantic City / Edward Lea Staff Photographer)

For some pieces, he’ll use shovels for fish bills, rakes for fins and light bulbs for eyes. All of the work is done in a shed in the backyard of his grandparents’ Cape May home, where Henderer will cut, sand and stain plywood before coating it with polyurethane to withstand any climate.
