Walnut reclaimed from a sofa.
Green poplar reclaimed from a mattress.
Maple reclaimed from a headboard.

Its a shame that all this beautiful wood was headed to the dump. Free wood is all around us.

To watch the entire build (video 3 will be up tomorrow) visit my blog here on LJ's.

Pretty stuff, Jay. Here in Fl the humidity plays havik with salt shakers. How does the salt hold up in those? Does it clump?

Put a little long grain rice in with your salt and you will never have a problem with humidity! These work great so far.
