Reclaimed Glory #10: Rescued a lonely solid Oak side table with a broken leg - Patch him up? or Cannabalize?

09-24-2013 04:11 AM by palaswood | 5 comments »

Made my rounds today after work, and came up short on all fronts, until I decided to hit a spot that usually yields nothing but a few nuts n bolts, although those are nice (but I have so many now). But alas, someone threw out this solid oak side table with one leg broken off about 8 inches up. Its a shame I didnt find the leg piece… So whats the plan LJs? Do I try to repair this little guy, it would make a solid little table – its all oak construction. And I did bring ...

The Gazebo #1: Almost finished.

12-29-2007 09:10 PM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

Somewhere on here I’d started a blog about our gazebo. I’ll have to go back and find the other blog entries. We started out with a 10×10 tent gazebo purchased from Rona, and after the wind destroyed the frame, it became a wooden framed gazebo with the tarps for walls and roof. The weather has been rough on the tarps and we have had to start replacing the tarps with wood. Other than the 2×4’s, we have used scrap pieces of everything and anything we could find ...

Reclaimed barnwood flooring

02-18-2017 09:38 PM by aefarm | 4 comments »

Hi All- We have just bought a farm house that comes with a barn. We would like to replace flooring throughout the house and the barn that comes with the property is old, but in good condition. It has a 2nd story loft floor that I think would make perfect floors. They are 6”x 3/4” tongue and groove pine planks. Any advice on the process of using this as flooring for our house? I assume they will need planed down. I want to keep as much character as possible, but also want floors that are fl...

Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

06-03-2014 03:33 AM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

Bathroom Progress

08-07-2007 05:19 PM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

20 years ago, we put an addition onto the house. For the new bathroom/laundry room we put in a big vanity which, until this weekend, did not have the side facing the door finished. The tap that was installed needed two hands to pull up on the handle to turn it on and then you were showered with a splash of water. Well, a couple weeks ago, my daughter and I painted the bathroom which inspired the renovations to the vanity. A new tap was installed—oh yah—it sits high above the si...

back to the box #3: waiting for the glue to dry

03-28-2007 05:22 AM by scottb | 10 comments »

or another title option, I need more clamps! There is nothing as great as an unexpected free day. Despite the fact I had to put in a 10.5 hour monday to get it. We lumberjocks are a funny lot, while people are watching TV, movies, or playing videogames on an otherwise “free” or “mental health day”, we head down into the shop to work for our fun. And today I was no exception. I was going to see how much of “Box #3” I could get done! I pulled out a c...
