A fellow down the street was doing some remodeling, and no longer need some boards. These were ones he had ripped out during demo. I took a few to the shop and ripped them into spindles. That one picture shows the lumber supply I had to work with. Made a porch railing with just what he had thrown away. A couple coats of white primer finished things off.

I just love it when people reuse wood. One of the best sources of wood to use if a person is patient enough to find it. Nice idea and it adds a lot to the house was well.

Look closely, that screen door was made from old floor boards. A plastic screen guard was added. A layer of 1/4” luann was added to the inside and outside of the bottom of the door. The posts were existing items, I had to “marry’ the railings to them. I already had a box of drywall screws on hand, all that was bought was a quart of white primer. That siding job was also mine, in exchange for 6 months free rent. Landlord provided all supplies, I did the install.
