I’ve seen some great projects made from recycled wood.
Me, I tend to be wary, I once recycled some wood from an old water bed ( remember those? ), I was ripping a piece from it, a 4×4, the saw bogged down as I ripped through a 3/8” lag bolt. The head had broken off and I didn’t know the rest of the bolt was still in the wood, I had a piece of it hanging in my shop for a while as a reminder…
A buddy of mine, long ago, picked up some bowling alley pieces, great stuff, except for the millions of nails holding the wood together. It did make cool looking kitchen counter tops…
