Reclaimed Glory #4: Workbench from reclaimed/salvaged lumber - mounting a face vise

08-21-2013 07:01 AM by palaswood | 4 comments »

I got started in woodworking about six months ago when I brought home a small log that was cut from a much bigger log off a black mulberry tree down the street that has fallen apart due to age, its own weight and who knows what else (but yields gobs of incredibly sweet fruit) As I stripped the bark and saw what was inside, I was mezmerized. This is a very old tree and yielded gorgeous wood. One thing led to another, and I began in earnest to amass a hoard of wood from anywhere I cou...

Reclaimed Glory #1: Salvaged Mystery Wood

08-15-2013 05:48 PM by palaswood | 10 comments »

Hi Wood lovers – I came upon some “trash” wood with some casters attached (not sure what it once was) discarded in a dumpster behind a renovator’s shop destined for the landfill, but fate would have other plans for it. The wood seemed in great shape with some good character beneath, so I rescued it, bundled it up, and rode it home on my bicycle (yes, thats right). When I got it home and sanded it down, I was AMAZED at the figure of these boards. Problem is I couldn’t figur...

....and I thought my day was over :)

12-23-2012 02:37 AM by JSB | 7 comments »

With my wife being at her mother’s in preparation for Christmas I am home alone. I got in from the shop earlier and thought to myself “All this free time and I came back home???” Back to the shop! I did a well needed clean up and blow out and found myself with some rare, spare shop time. So here’s what I started. A couple days ago I found another sofa headed to the landfill. I had a small sledge and a razor blade knife so I decide why not. After chopping most of...

Around the Shop #5: A Rustic Corner Cupboard

12-01-2012 10:18 PM by Don W | 18 comments »

This morning my wife decided what she wanted to do with an oak door we bought some time ago at a flea market. She wanted a rustic corner cupboard to hold some crocks. Now it was a bit chilly today here in the north east and I’ve got some white oak lumber to stack, but a nice fire in the new woodstove in the shop sounded like a really good idea. Out to the shop to find some rustic lumber. So the vision…... Now I didn’t take as many pictures as I should have, but ...

Lumber Scores! #2: Massive oak posts and planks from the Coney Island Boardwalk! (Wood gloat!)

03-03-2012 05:43 AM by SalvageCraft | 15 comments »

Wow. It’s been an eventful day! I visited a friend who works out at Pioneer Millworks (PioneerMillworks.com) this afternoon, and hauled in quite a load! Pioneer specializes in reclaimed wood flooring, but also provides timber framing and millwork services. They receive massive beams from old barns, factories, and other structures as well as flooring planks, massive joists, and plank siding from all over the northeast. It was mind boggling to see their outdoor lumber yard plump with...

Lumber Scores! #1: Milling Walnut, Silver Maple, and some mystery logs!

01-02-2012 05:06 AM by SalvageCraft | 7 comments »

Hey all, Thanks for checking out my first blog post!I’ve been collecting logs for the past year or so with the intention of milling and drying them, but only recently got around to it. Most of it is from jobs I’ve done for people cleaning up fallen or storm damaged trees. A bunch of it is from neighbors on my street, too. I know most of the species I have in my log pile, but there are a few mysterious chunks I picked off the curb which could be just about anything. If anyon...
