I had a job to replace a door with rot in the bottom.
The door was duly replaced and it was then destined for the rubbish.
Not one for throwing material able to be recycled into the trash I took it home and “worked it over”
I did a bit of an examination of its construction and after removing the tenon wedges it was able to be dismantled quite easily.
I then ran all the pieces through the jointer the sawed the rubbish off and thicknessed everything resulting in the stack sitting on the bench.
I am not sure what the timber actually is but it will be stored for later reuse.
Nothing amazing but just goes to show timber can be reclaimed if you wanted to go to the effort and take the time.
Not sure of the cost effectiveness of it though as you certainly couldn’t build a door out of it again.
I sent the pictures back to the original owner as they asked what I did with the door, hence the title.
