Patio / Deck Bench #2: Frame just about complete

05-31-2010 02:43 AM by Blinky | 2 comments »

It was so much fun gluing the frame of the bench together (!#$%^&* *&^%$#) = need more clamps , I forgot to take pictures.I like how it’s shaping up though.This is after glue-up, before finish:To glue up, I wiped all mating surfaces (including the dowel holes), with acetone. I used TiteBond III; hope it goes well.To finish, I sanded down to 220 grit, wiped clean. I then wiped with acetone, and applied Penofin. I had to take it outside to see how it looks in its future ‘...

Woodworking and Life #1: Wood as a metaphor for what is sacred

03-18-2014 02:42 AM by TheBrokeYoke | 7 comments »

I have a day job that allows me to have a nice office full of furniture that I built. The office doesn’t have a window to the outside, but rather 2 walls of glass that turn inward to the building. It calls to mind a sort of human zoo, where I am one of the attractions. I have a number of interesting things placed in those windows for everyone to see, hopefully distracting them from looking at me. One of the stranger things that I am often questioned about is a stack of 100+ structural...

Piece #1, a jewelry box

06-15-2009 08:37 PM by James | 1 comment »

Well after looking around I decided that since most of this wood is warped along its length, I would be better off making smaller things from it. Also, I tend to get more satisfaction from smaller work, so I made a jewelry box. It can be seen in my projects list. I really like working with this old wood. It has a lot of character to it, which makes picking out where to place the unique features of the wood pretty fun. It finishes real nice with no stain at all, too. As I am working on s...

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...

Recycled Honey Do...

09-22-2007 05:16 AM by Buckskin | 6 comments »

My wife wants to move her sewing table into our bedroom so that has brought about a few changes. To get the table in the TV has to go someplace but it can’t leave the room. This is one of those spur of the moment deals where I took a few measurements and headed to the shop. Looking around I decided to use 1×4’s that once served as bed slats and a piece of 7/16 OSB that was left over from building my benches. The shelf is now hanging from the ceiling joists with a fir...

Reclaimed Wood Chisel Rack

06-08-2016 05:12 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

Lately my chisels have been strewn around my bench. They had no place to go and kept falling onto the floor, dulling the edges. I got tired of this and so decided to make a chisel rack from whatever wood I had lying around. https://youtu.be/_vWWgS4DFSg

new coffee table

07-06-2015 10:32 PM by emart | 0 comments »

I didnt bother posting this in my project list because its mostly metal but i figured people might like to see it anyways. This is made from some reclaimed purple heart chunks I bought from the salvage shop for $5 each. If I could afford it I’d have bought their entire stock. They were pretty rough to start with but they turned out decent in the end. Anyways here’s pictures.

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...
