Hi folks! So, having broken my faithful mallet, I set out to make a new one out of some hardwood stretchers that I reclaimed from a pallet. View on YouTube

Reclaimed Wood Chisel Rack

06-08-2016 05:12 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

Lately my chisels have been strewn around my bench. They had no place to go and kept falling onto the floor, dulling the edges. I got tired of this and so decided to make a chisel rack from whatever wood I had lying around. https://youtu.be/_vWWgS4DFSg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19UQdKfjUsY About a month ago, I made a clock out of some pallet wood. I decided it was about time I give the clock face some TLC. I hope you enjoy!

new coffee table

07-06-2015 10:32 PM by emart | 0 comments »

I didnt bother posting this in my project list because its mostly metal but i figured people might like to see it anyways. This is made from some reclaimed purple heart chunks I bought from the salvage shop for $5 each. If I could afford it I’d have bought their entire stock. They were pretty rough to start with but they turned out decent in the end. Anyways here’s pictures.

Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT

06-29-2015 07:27 AM by Yuval Eitan | 0 comments »

Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT I made this bat as a birthday present for my (back then) nine years old elder son.We have no tradition of playing baseball here, but my son was exposed to it at school, and wished he had one. I had no idea what size will fit a kid, the proportions it shoul have, the types of wood usually used etc, so I did some online research. I didn’t follow the official measures strictly, but got a fair idea. It had to be manageable in terms of size and we...

Thoughts On Working With Reclaimed Wood

05-21-2015 03:11 AM by michaelray | 4 comments »

Working with reclaimed wood can be very rewarding once the final product comes together. Unless you are purchasing it from someone who has already pulled the nails and cleaned the surface be prepared to put some effort into preparing it for projects. Collecting and preparing the raw materials often requires a lot of hard work. Having worked with a lot of reclaimed wood over the past several years more and more projects are demanding it especially since completing a barn tear down over the pas...

Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

06-03-2014 03:33 AM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #1: Introduction

05-21-2014 12:41 AM by TimBridge | 1 comment »

Hi all, I’ve been working on this Morris chair for the past 3 weeks and keeping pictures and my “blog entries” on imgur but I just realized that LumberJocks is a great place to keep the journey. I will be moving over a few entries at a time whenever I find the time. This is my first piece of furniture that is not a shop piece and it’s my first project that I’m finishing with something other than mineral oil and wax. These are the plans I’m using...

The FREE bench vise for the adventurous.

03-30-2014 11:38 PM by jordanp | 7 comments »

I hadn’t planed on making a new vise this weekend. It all started when a friend called and said his dad had a broken down craftsman radial arm saw. He had asked if I wanted it because he was going to haul it off to the dump, of course my response was heck yes! That’s a free tool stand at minimum. I tore it down and used the stand for my bench top drill press.I took the motor off to keep just in case I needed a replacement for something down the line. My 3 yr old was very fas...

Projects, the backstories #1: Slotted coin displays

03-20-2014 04:00 AM by PASs | 4 comments »

One of my staples for sale at craft shows is slotted coin displays.They are fairly simple to make and I try to make them in batches so I have inventory without setting up too often to make them.All of them so far have been made from dunnage used to ship steel radio transmission towers from India to the US. Where we would use pine 2×4’s to brace freight this particular company used an assortment of mid/far east woods. From what I can see and surmise it is the off-cuts from the India...
