If you want to buy reclaimed Red Oak Flooring, 3” wide, random lengths, in good condition. Milled 35 years ago in Eastern North Carolina. I am finishing a floor project and was able to harvest this gem of rustic feeling flooring and will have it available for awhile. email email@example.com.
I love re-purposing old materials. My latest find is a poplar filled box mattress.
With my wife being at her mother’s in preparation for Christmas I am home alone. I got in from the shop earlier and thought to myself “All this free time and I came back home???” Back to the shop! I did a well needed clean up and blow out and found myself with some rare, spare shop time. So here’s what I started. A couple days ago I found another sofa headed to the landfill. I had a small sledge and a razor blade knife so I decide why not. After chopping most of...
This morning my wife decided what she wanted to do with an oak door we bought some time ago at a flea market. She wanted a rustic corner cupboard to hold some crocks. Now it was a bit chilly today here in the north east and I’ve got some white oak lumber to stack, but a nice fire in the new woodstove in the shop sounded like a really good idea. Out to the shop to find some rustic lumber. So the vision…... Now I didn’t take as many pictures as I should have, but ...
I have this strange 21×21 nook on my deck. So this was the final result of putting a planterbox in the spot.Reclaimed redwood.
Wow. It’s been an eventful day! I visited a friend who works out at Pioneer Millworks (PioneerMillworks.com) this afternoon, and hauled in quite a load! Pioneer specializes in reclaimed wood flooring, but also provides timber framing and millwork services. They receive massive beams from old barns, factories, and other structures as well as flooring planks, massive joists, and plank siding from all over the northeast. It was mind boggling to see their outdoor lumber yard plump with...
Hey all, Thanks for checking out my first blog post!I’ve been collecting logs for the past year or so with the intention of milling and drying them, but only recently got around to it. Most of it is from jobs I’ve done for people cleaning up fallen or storm damaged trees. A bunch of it is from neighbors on my street, too. I know most of the species I have in my log pile, but there are a few mysterious chunks I picked off the curb which could be just about anything. If anyon...
I just scored two 10’ 8×6 timbers from the shoring used to ship this Mercedes Benz on a aircraft, now what to do with them.
I have a lot of pallet wood and enjoy using it to make new things. I also bought a bag of used handles not long ago, so I figured I would incorporate them into the new projects which are trays. Four of the handles were soaked in a mixture of vinegar and water with a ball of steel wool thrown in the tub which makes the handles look old and rusty. They are attached with screws from the inside after the tray is made. The pallet wood is planed and trimmed to size. Holes remain from the or...
I have decide to turn only reclaimed, American woods. I’m doing this for several reasons:1) There are trees that we pass, and largely ignore, everyday. Turning this wood gives me a chance to reintroduce myself and others to to this amazing world. I love the outdoors, and I go hiking, exploring, and “wood hunting” with my son quite often. I want to be able to point to a tree and tell him what it is. But as I’ve started trying to identify the species of wood that I&...
