  1. Pallet wood project. (Part one)

    My wife and I have been thinking about adding a bit of character to our house seeing as newer houses tend to lack that. We have been talking about making three tip out garbage cans in the back of our island, so this pallet wall is going to have three gold cut into it for garbage, cardboard...
  2. 125 year old reclaimed Fir living room furniture

    The attic in our 125 year old Victorian had Fir moldings, trim, stairs and floor boards. When I wanted to build an office up there I pulled up the old floor boards, insulated and used 3/4 ply for the floor. All the boards were begging for a project so I hand planed everything, glued up stock...

  9. Holtzapffel-inspired Workbench (on a budget)

    This is a workbench project that was based on Christopher Schwarz's design for the Holtzapffel Workbench. I followed it loosely, making the following more major changes to it: -Made the stretchers closer to the floor. They are about 3" away from the floor. In another of Schwarz's designs, he...
  10. Garage Shelf from Reclaimed Fencing

    My son needed garage shelves that could hold some heavy items. We had just recovered huge piles of fences blown over by Hurricane Ivan, so I made a shelf using the lumber "raw" (last two pics). I didn't like how rough and ugly it was, so for the second shelf I did a quick jointing and planing...

  12. Antique Oak Weatherstation

    I pulled this oak from a house in Haubstadt, Indiana that was being demolished. The house was built around the turn on the century (we found newspapers stuffed in the attic from 1903.) The floor joists were rough sawn 8/4 red oak, quartersawn, about 7"-9" wide, 10'-15' long. I went crazy when...

    A friend is in the process of redeveloping an old industrial site in NE Philadelphia and offered me the lumber from the old rooftop water tanks that he was removing. The lumber turned out to be beautiful straight grained white cedar that we believe dates to the early 1900's. The faces of the...

    While camping in the Adirondacks a couple years back, we found a large deadfall Birch with the bark still intact. Needless to say, I was able to salvage two large pieces of bark, one which eventually became this sign. The bark is glued to a piece of scrap OSB, the letters in local Maple...
  18. Cutting Board

    I made this cutting board from Appleply. (Appleply's a hardwood plywood similar to Baltic Birch) I cut it in 1 inch strips, laid it side to side and laminated it all together again. The top of the "cutting" board is this pattern of very thin, but consistant strips of hardwood. I finished it with...
