  1. Projects Reclaimed Barn Beam Bench "Calliope"

    A very old barn board is the seat. Pinkish/red epoxy channels and reinforcement in cracks help keep this board straight and together. One leg is another barn board while the other leg is a 10.75" diameter tube steel powder coated grey. Both legs are diagonally supported by triangular barn...
  2. Barn Door Baby Gate For A Dog Sitter

    A customer of mine watches dogs of all sizes. During feeding time she needed to separate them as well as keep them out the kitchen when cooking. She found a picture online she liked and asked me to re-create it. Made from 1x pine. Some tool and saw marks left in, others added. Distressed with...
  3. Toy Barn

    It's been a while since I've posted any projects because I've been building our kitchen cabinets for what seems like forever(project entry forthcoming). But, now that the cabinet project is wrapping up I decided to sneak in this Toy Barn build. This is going to be a Christmas present for my...
  4. Shed Doors (Barn Style)

    I have been posting (albeit intermittently), about the re-construction of a 12×20 shed in my backyard here in Columbia, SC. I shopped around for barn door hardware but could not locate any that I liked, or that seemed robust enough for these heavy doors, for under $250-$300. I made a temporary...
  5. Barn Find Oak Stool

    A few weekends ago, my brother and I went to a barn auction and I walked away with a pile of decades old oak boards for $5. Apparently people don't realize the potential of this stuff! One of the boards in the pile was a 10" x 2" foot slab of oak. It had various knots in it and worm holes...
  6. Necklace rack for SIL

    My brother asked me to make something for his wife to hang her necklaces on for Christmas. He had no idea what he wanted so he left it up to me to design. I looked through LJ to get some ideas and nothing hit me. I had some strips of oak and bass wood. I glued them together and turned the...
  7. Barn window coffee table

    Simple coffee table using an old barn window. My wife designed it, and I built it. Tempered glass is on top and on the bottom shelf. Legs have a taper and are dadoed into the shelf below the top. The wood used is all reclaimed barn boards; maple, elm, and red oak.
  8. Toy Barn

    My son is really into toy farm animals and had been wanting a barn to keep them in. My wife & I were hunting around ebay when I saw a picture of a barn similar to this one and thought "I can do that!" :-) Barn is made from 1/2" birch plywood with maple trim. Finished with Varathane stain on...
  9. Sliding Barn Doors

    They are BIG and heavy and look amazing installed. The doors are solid wood and have been distressed with a very unique process I have developed to make "new" lumber look old and reclaimed and it looks authentic. The reason for new lumber distressed to look old was to help keep the budget where...
  10. End Tables

    The remainder of the 6 tables that I made from the 3 I posted earlier. Random scrap boards that I found and an old thick barn board that I made into legs for the last table. Nothing special about these tables. Most likely to give them away to deserving people.
  11. Cutting boards and trivets!

    Made some more cutting boards and trivets after getting some inspiration from this website. The first one is cherry, maple, and barn wood elm. The second is cherry and maple. The third and fourth are barn wood trivets. Just took off two random boards and made an end grain trivet out of them...
  12. reclaim frame

    Quick picture frame made from recycled barn wood. Did not have a large enough pice to make continuos grain. mitered corners. Fits a 8X10 photo. No finish so it would match his mounts in his man cave.
  13. End Grain Hall/Sofa Table (Completely Reclaimed)

    This was an experiment to see if it would look okay. It did. I learned a lot from this table. Firstly, end grain is a huge hassle to glue up. Make sure you have enough clamps to keep the ends from curling up while the glue dries. Secondly, even though the barn wood may look straight does...
  14. Scarf joint ceiling beams

    Made some hallow beams for the ceiling of my house. Made out of douglas fir and pine barn boards. Corners are miter joints rolled over with a screwdriver and hooked together with a locking scarf joints. Sanded, stained natural, and finished with 2 coats of gloss polyurethane. Beams are...
  15. Barn board kitchen cabinets

    Made some kitchen cabinets out of floor boards from a haymow. Most boards are elm, with some birch, red oak, white oak and maple. The boards were in the haymow as floor boards for around 80 years. The carcasses are made with 3/4" birch plywood. The drawers are maple with finger, dadoes, and...
  16. Barn beam stair cable railing

    Custom stair railing from barn beams. Beams are 4×6 and are all elm. The railings are elm, maple, and white oak. Custom cable railing as well. Railings are screwed into the beams using pocket holes and 3" long construction screws.
  17. Barn Wood Clock

    Had this cool barn board that I wanted to display, but it's kinda weird to just place a board on the wall. So I made it into a clock! The board has been in the barn floor in the haymow for around 80 years. I just thought the grain on the board was good looking enough to be justified as a stand...
  18. Wormy Barn Board Bath Cabinet

    Made a bathroom cabinet out of wormy barn board elm and maple. Soft close drawer slides and drawers, finger joints in drawers, lap joints in doors and drawer fronts, and a counter top with several different species. A vessel sink will be sitting in the middle once it is installed.
  19. Custom XL Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64" wide and 105" tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the...
  20. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Sliding Door

    Here's a recent build I did using different barn woods from our lot. The customer picked out all of the different pieces at the lot and then I ripped them, jointed the back side, and brad-nailed/adhered them to the birch plywood. when it was fully assembled, our finish guy did a great lacquer...
