« Part 13: thoughts on recycling timber for projects Part 14 of Church pews project series no next part

Some time ago I thought I had finished making several peices of furniture from 160 year old church pews. Recently the customer came back and asked if I could salvage enough timber to make a matching bookcase.

With a great deal of difficulty, by laminating pieces together, incorporating and staining new pieces to match the old where I ran out of original timber and repairing quite a few boards to make them usable, I finally managed it.

I was concerned it might be a bit too rustic, but the customers love it. Much to my relief…
