A side rack to my cabinet for a few often used tools.
(The cabinet was an earlier project)
It’s from a recent magazine.
Resaw, reshape & recycle.
Just hanging out in the shop.
Thanks for looking.

I picked up a half dozen skids like that made of red oak. Got a bunch of nice 4×4s.

Great use. I keep trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Anybody can make something georgous out of zebrawood or some other species that sells by the pound. I was at Woodcraft today and saw some exotic woods for $50 per BF. Sawdust made out of that would be beautiful. ;-)

Nice save on the wood, but we’re going to have to kick you out of the woodworkers guild for being too organized. :-)

Great idea for reclaimed wood! Your workshop puts me to shame… so neat, organized and clean!
I just love all the labeled drawers. Now you’ve got me thinking….!!
Happy holidays, Eric.

Excellent re-use project. I love pallet wood, but the nails can get expensive if you’re not careful.

Petty well organized.

I have to label my drawers, lately, I’ve had to open every drawer to find what I want.

It’s amazing how much wood goes to the landfill. I’ve found a lot of good wood from pallets.
