Free Wood #6: Curb Score

09-20-2016 02:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 15 comments »

I vowed to myself that if a certain dresser were still on the curb on the morning of trash collection that I’d grab the drawers for myself. If I had a pickup truck, I might have grabbed the carcass as well. The tops are often of use. As I began breaking the drawers down, I noticed on one drawer front that someone had put the holes for the drawer pulls in the wrong spot and had filled them in. Oops. The drawer fronts have a veneer, but the core looks to be solid popla...

Another exotic wood source #3: Free applewood Piece

07-29-2016 11:05 PM by ralbuck | 3 comments »

I Want to see it used—not burned!Any one close that wants this unique piece of apple wood for a project! I will happily give it to you! (Aloha OR—Hillsboro, Beaverton etc.) I think it is to neat to just become firewood. It is still green. I do want to see the completed project eventually though! Sorry picture went sideways. the piece is about 7-1/2 in diameter at the larger branch—the “leg” is about 4” in and the height is about 18 inches.

Free Wood #5: Old Dresser Drawers

06-10-2016 12:41 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

A while ago I saw a chest of drawers on the curb, out for the trash. I didn’t have room for the carcass, but I grabbed the drawers. The drawer fronts were plywood covered with veneer. Unfortunately I didn’t know this until I started planing them down. Pretty much ruined as plywood, I used them to make a bunch of John Heisz style push sticks. One small bonus from these was a few pieces of hardware. I got two mending plates and two corner brackets. All hail ...

Free Wood #4: The Pew Report

05-14-2016 11:36 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

As mentioned previously in this series, I got possession of two old church pews that my church no longer needed. Today I disassembled them and cut the long pieces in half crosswise to fit them in my car. Because of the splits in the wood, I ended up with many 1×4’s and a few 1×6’s. One seat stayed intact, but it has a split. I’ll have to break it anyway to fit through my thickness planer. I cleaned the wood up, taking off any molding so that it would fit ...
