Thanks for sharing… really nice… love to see pieces that have been re-purposed.

And, thanks for mentioning the Iroko. I think that is the wood I used to make my first project… plant table. The wood was easy to work, and looked really nice when finished. I wasn’t quite sure what wood it was. Your project shows off the grain and color tones that closely matched it—although your table is much more eloquent… :)

Nice rehab! It’s amazing that it survived the submersion as well as it did.

Were you in Lakeview? I was a victim of the “Broussard flooding” in Metairie.

It feels good to be able to save something I built (even if it looks nothing like my original project). I also was able to salvage a solid teak dresser I built in 1975 and a cypress bed I built in 1990 something. However I did loose alot of furniture I built over the years from other woods that warped ant twisted like a pretzel. Makes me appreciate weather resistant woods even more, although I do not plan to build any treated pine furniture.

CharlieM: Yes we were in Lakeview. Had 12 feet of water that did not go down for 3 weeks. Guess that is what happens when you neighborhood and city is below sea level.Moved to Prairieville and found a house with a yard larger than my entire block in Lakeview and it is 22 feet above sea level. Talk about motivation for buying new tools and building a new shop!
