I’ve been busy trying to gather up some oak barn wood that was given to me by a local farmer.

More on the back story of how I came across it is in this post.

I was able to get a couple of pictures before unloading the truck. I’ve posted them here.

One of my hopes for the wood is to be able to build a Morris Chair sometime in the future.

Its great to find a bunch of reclaimed guys out there like myself. Im always interested in how other people dress the old reclaimed stuff. I just got into woodworking about 2 years ago and love the reclaiming, just hate removing nails and spending blades when i find em accidentally. Do you use a wand or anything to find the old nails, and when you do find those lovely old cut nails how do you deal with the embedded ones?

chrisstef -

I use the Lumber Wizard III and I believe it has paid for itself versus the number of blades I would have had to replace had I not purchased it. I highly recommend it if you frequently use reclaimed wood.

I’m working on getting a new workbench put together with partially reclaimed material. Stay tuned.
