It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a project…but much of my work hasn’t been ‘woodworking’ in nature over the past few months (at least not woodwork that takes good pictures) ;-)
A few months ago, I bought out a friend who was in the Barn Reclamation business here in Indiana. I bought over 5,000 board feet of wood. Some of it I’ve already sold. One barn that came with the ‘bundle’ I am taking down to move it to my property and use it for a workshop. We are pretty excited about that! I’ve attached a couple pictures of that beautiful piece.
I really love working with reclaimed lumber. The metaphors run deep…taking old, 150 years plus, wood that’s been painted by God’s creative brush using wind and weather, and restoring it to good use for people to enjoy for another 150-200 years is special.
My friends…God is never done with us, no matter how rough our lives have been, just like we are seldom done working with the wood that we love. Have a great day!
