A close friend wanted some bookshelves, and loves the old wood look. Most of the wood came from a Craigslist listing by a local contractor. It was from a roof and full of nails. Nasty wood to work with.

Yea, and when you’re planing you find the nail that’s broke off in it. Your results are beautiful.

Nice builds! I make things from reclaimed often as well, those nails just hidden under the surface are just great on my infinity knives.
