Just finished this pine cabinet from recycled organ pipe wood. Our church is refurbishing the organ so all the 1870’s wooden pipes were going to be thrown out. I was able to get the pipes before that happened. My shop was packed to the rafter with organ pipes and parts. I have recycled the air boxes and bellows, but the pipes are the real prize. I have reclaimed about 6 pipes so far. The forth picture is sideways and shows the size of the big pipes I have left to reclaim. The tallest is almost 11’. The air boxes were mostly popular and filled with holes, so I couldn’t do to much with them. I removed over 40lbs of screws from them. The cabinet I made was for this year’s Holly Berry fair this week is 30”x 22” x 5”. The lumber is all clear pine and as I said from the 1870 original organ. I still have about 10 more pipes to get good wood out of. The small pipes will be sold at the fair as keep sakes from the organ. The back of the cabinet is made of 3/8” boards from fronts of two of the smaller pipes. The wood pile just keep growing, so I can make all kinds of things.
I finished the cabinet with Danish natural oil. What beautiful wood.

The cabinet is nice. But the story about the pipes and the recycling (40 lbs of screws??) is even cooler.
