326 days ago by palaswood | 10 comments »

The other night I spied with my little wood-crazed eyes, a pallet with exceptional color and figure that is the same wood as I had salvaged from a disassembled dolly of sorts in topic: What species is this?? Wood Identification help Here is what i saw that piqued my interest: So I went shopping the following day on my lunch break to that big orange Home Center, and came away with some great tools for breaking down this pallet. (reviews forthcoming, they all performed awesomely) ...

1577 days ago by Gary Fixler | 17 comments »

I stopped in and asked if I could look through their scrap pile for free wood, and as happens pretty much always here in west LA, they looked at me, shrugged their shoulders, and said “sure.” There’s wasn’t much, and nothing great, but the wood looked old, and I t...

Here’s a good one for you home re-modelers out there.My Son recently talked to a friend of his from Minneapolis. He bought a fixer upper home that he planned on reselling. He invested a lot of his sweat, time, and money into it.He had recently sold the home, and about a week after selling it, he happened to drive past the old place, & to his astonishment, the house was no longer there. The people who purchased it, demolished it to build a new home.
