A gift I made for my father. It sits in a very narrow room so it’s tough to get a good picture, but I was happy with it. Love working with old barnwood and other types of re-claimed/recycled woods.

I like the contrast with the old and the cleaned up wood. Good work.

Thanks guys. Going to start re-building my late grandfather’s old pool table in a couple days. Now I have somewhere to get advice when I need it. Just stumbled across this website yesterday and I’m already loving it. Can’t believe I just now found it.

Nice use of the old barn wood. You gave it new life and a great gift to your father as well. That rifle looks like a Remington 22 automatic. Is that what it is?..............Jim

@ Jim Jakosh- No that’s his muzzleloader. Not sure of the caliber off the top of my head.

@ 3Gwoodguy- speaking of history, that’s one of my favorite parts of working with the reclaimed wood. You just can’t duplicate the real deal. I live in cattle country so most of my barnwood comes from old barns, corrals, and windbreaks. The weathering makes beautiful lumber but it’s next to impossible to find any good hardwoods around here.

Good Job! I like the fact you use old wood and recycled wood. I to myself use both more often than new wood. I like the panels they pop against the barn wood.
