What do I see in this pile of old discarded oak crate wood?

I see a new work out bench for my son and I to use.

(Here is a link to the plans blog. Thank you to the author.)

Why add to the already over flowing landfills when you can clean this stuff up and give it a new life?

1) You save a ton of money on wood.
2) You are “environmentally green”.
3) And yeah, it’s more work, but it’s worth it for me.

Thanks for looking and have a great day !

-- Having fun...Eric

That looks great, I am jealous of all the pallet wood you get and what wonderful things you can make from them.

Ya done good here! Not only does it appear functional, it looks nice enough to bring in the house. That is always my criterion for how well I did. LOL

Good Show, Eric. That is really cool.

I am still in my forced march regarding EMR….....looking forward to shop time.

This was a refreshing joy to see. My current project involves reclaimed wood, and I am itching to get back to it.
