  1. 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...
  2. iPad Pulpit

    Here's an interesting project. This is a pulpit (podium) for iPad. It's made of reclaimed American Chestnut barn wood, steel, aluminum, and calf skin leather. The chestnut came from a barn we call our "Chestnut Barn" that we tore down in Pennsylvania. The patina on the surface was so nice and...
  3. Different use for discarded silverware cases

    I just had tons of fun rebuilding this old silverware box that I bought at Goodwill for $3.99 plus tax. The outside of the box is finished with a dark red mahogany oil. I gutted the inside and put in a false bottom to hold the chisels. My dividers and calipers live under the chisels. I simply...
  4. Reclaimed Wide Plank Heart Pine Barn Wood Flooring

    I milled this floor from our reclaimed "Granary Boards". Most of this wood came from barns in Pennsylvania that were 150-300 years old. I ran the rough boards through the planer and wide belt sander, then ripped it to the correct widths. Then I ran them all through the shaper with a flooring...
  5. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Side Table

    This contemporary table was one I built for fun. It's made from a reclaimed white oak "door buck" (threshold) from a stack we have at the yard. It's 3" thick and 24"x24". The cube is a 24"x24"x24" steel frame I welded and then had chrome dipped. It's a very simple design. I like having all the...
  6. International Keychains

    This project originated from two sources. A garage sale find and internet orders. The first and second pics are the result. Finished keychains, destined for a new friend of mine in Mumbai, India and Sarasota, FL. The next two are of a piece of 50-60s vintage, solid maple bedstand. It was...
  7. Reclaimed Red Oak Countertop

    Here's a project where we wanted to make the old wood look new. We have a pile of red oak I've been making countertops and tables from. Here I laminated a bunch of 3/4×2" strips together to create a long grain butcher block countertop. It sure is nice having a widebelt sander for projects like...
  8. Workbench Drawers

    Due to some long needed re-organization of the instrument repair shop at work, I finally got my very own dedicated space. No more sharing with the boss! So I put up a tool board, acquired a nice LED light and decided I needed some storage drawers on the worktop. No more bending down to access...
  9. Simple Reclaimed Beam Mantle

    This is one of the h4s (hand-hewn four sides) softwood beams from our barn wood lot. The customer picked it out and gave us the dimensions. They wanted it natural (unfinished). It's held up by a red oak french cleat. The cleat sits in a routed out pocket in the back of the beam and is 3/4"...
  10. Ukulele holder for office

    I spend the lion's share of my day (sometimes night too :-( ) in my home-office upstairs. I decided that I needed a little diversion from my computer every now and then and brought a ukulele up to strum and pick when thinking hard or if the J-O-B gets me down - no one can be unhappy while...
  11. Wooden Ladder up-cycle

    A couple of people have asked about the ladder bookshelf seen in a previous project post, so I decided to add it here. When we bought our place in Seattle, we inherited a wooden extension ladder that I found in the rafters of the garage. It was more than a little wobbly and covered in 60+ years...

    Custom made Window Valance. Was sought out because I was able to make the at a leghthy width. This on was 14' 8 1/2" long and 8" tall by 8" deep. Six Brackets was made from Oak and place on the wall under neath the Valance. After installing it I also placed Lighting under neigth it. Customer...
  13. Hose Reel: Your delivery of rustic charm has arrived!

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] Our neighbor had a retaining wall put in and the stone for the masons came on pallets. Having this project in mind I asked if I could have them. I disassembled them using my Pallet Pal as designed by Izzy Swan. After denailing the boards I sorted them. The heavier...
  14. Small waste(paper) basket

    The little, plastic waste basket in our bathroom broke, so I took the opportunity to make one out of wood that would match the other wooden accouterments that I made over the summer. I used some wood, possibly poplar which was previously a pair of end tables that we no longer needed. The...
  15. Blogs
    Dressers [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] Where do you find wood that isn't plain pine boards and studs from the local lumberyard? If you don't live near a furniture supply house or don't want to pay for wood for small projects, do like I do. I live in a mid-sized town in the rural corner of New...
