I was feeling kind of naked for not having any projects posted so I had to make the bed this morning and get something posted.
First is a painted chest made from 3/4 pine ply that was saved from a closing shoe store, used for shelving in the back room of the store. The decorative rails were applied from a poplar pallet. This is the project that convinced me to be alot more selective of the wood I salvage. I must have a pound of wood filler in this thing. It is about 9 months old now and Im pleasently pleased with the way the paint is being distressed at the corners, letting the kids sit on it while they watch tv seems to have accelerated the process.
You can see that the lid is just plywood with poplar trim held together by pocket joint screws.
The last picture is a quickie headborad I threw together from 1/4 birch ply and some ripped 2×4’s. this was a salvaged out of a shipping crate from a moving company. Im not thrilled by it but was frustrated with no having a headboard. I’m on the look out for a couple oak pallets for a replacement.
Thanks for looking
