These are made of white fir that was cut from Salvage Logs and air dried to under seven percent in less than five weeks. I can surface plane, cut, assemble and sand thirty of these in a day (more if I use pre surfaced lumber). They are 16” long, 9” tall, 10” wide and assembled with hidden screws, a few 1/4” crown staples (also hard to see) and glue. I may ask $15.00 at an upcoming craft show. They move faster at $10.00.

They are great Ron. I really like the lines on them. I can see why you sell a bunch of them.

That’s cool. There’s a local guy that makes stuff like this and they sell like hotcakes. Good job.

I checked out your website, cool stuff! I love what your doing with the whole reclaimed lumber, and the mobile saw mill. I just had a 70 foot white oak taken down in my backyard and I can’t help but think how cool it would have been to have it quarter sawn into boards. Great work!

Try drilling and cutting some “cutesy” hearts, pines or apples in them too. The women really go for that.
