Topic tags/keywords: reclaimed lumber refurbishing question tip

My neighbor just tore down a 6 ft. wood fence in his back yard and has them stacked up in his yard. I am getting into finding reclaimed lumber because of budget constraints. Is wood fencing a good form of reclaimed lumber? What are some good projects I could use the lumber for? Your ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!

Do you know what type of wood it is. If it’s pressure treated I’d make sure I only made outside projects like another fence, planter boxes, benches, etc.

Its probably cedar and it is a good choice for bird houses and outdoor planter boxes.

Hi Matt, welcome to LJ. I love to get old cedar fencing and make birdhouses and feeders out of it. I just made one last week. Here’s you a link if you want to see it.

They are a little bit bigger than a bird house.
