Project is a mobile island built out of 70+ year old doors from my grandfathers house we remodeled. Don’t worry I reused all the other old doors in the house, these doors were the damaged leftovers that found new life. I also used very old wood for the top from old horse waterers and feed troughs made out of cypress that were in our old barn that was damaged 30 years ago and that I’ve stored most of that time. I teach full time so evenings in the shop are limited but weekends are full time at the bench.

Welcome to LJs, I like your barn, I live in Houston and wish I had that much dry ground to put a shop on. Don’t get to Post much, my son’s inlaws go to the Christmas place that J. Cruz has there in town. He plays Santa Claus for them at Christmas. Keep making sawdust.

Thanks!!!!
My wife goes in the Christmas shop occasionally. And to his trade days little village when it’s open.
For all you shop dust guys out there…..
I’m working on how to setup my little shop once it’s done. I have three old repurposed science lab cabinets and tops to use so if you have ideas on interior arrangement throw the ideas out there.
14×28 shop.

Ok all you lumberjocks out there I finally got the old yet new mobile kitchen island done for my wife, short one drawer being rebuilt by my older son at his cabinet shop.
Proud to say that everything on the island is 75 years old or older except the 2×2 steel frame and locking wheels. Doors or parts of doors, door knobs and backplanes, old cypress wood and very old wooden boxcar wood, original cutting and bread boards out of my grandfather’s house, and harrow plow points for the towel rack.
To say the least Momma D is mucho happy with me!!!!!!!
