  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. How to make an Up-Cycled Pallet wood Sliding Barn Door

    My kids are avid gamers, and since we moved in to our house they have had their gaming rigs setup in a finished portion of our basement. The problem was that the basement had be modestly finished with simulated wood (read ugly) paneling and the bi-fold door that separated the space from the...
  3. Reclaimed Heart Pine Round Expandable Dining Table

    This expandable dining table is crafted from reclaimed heart pine. It features a 42 inch round top expandable to a 57 inch long oval table. The base is custom made with 8 sides, custom feet attached with mortise and tenon joinery, and the column was turned on my lathe to give the profile...

    I built this desk with reclaimed cypress barn boards. The legs are from an old dining table.
  5. Fenced in Workshop - Rip Sled

    Paneled my garage interior wall with cedar fence pickets recovered from neighbor's fence replacements. Started with 16 fence panels ranging from 4-6' wide. To get consistent size slats of solid wood with no rot, had to plane down to 3/8" thick and 4 1/2" wide. Out of 16 fence panels, I got 99...

    EDIT: Holy cow we made it to the Daily Top 3! Thanks everyone - make sure you check out the full video build here: This community is truly amazing. I think a few of you saw my first post yesterday - a butcher block desk that I could have been more thrilled to share with the world and your...
  7. Recycled Lumber Table

    This is a table made from recycled lumber I got from a dumpster locally. This table is for a cafe that here in the area, and they wanted the recycled theme to be carried out into the furniture. I ripped pieces with a table saw, positioned them together, ran threaded bolt through the middle, and...
  8. Ukelele Case from Recylcled Lumber

    This is ukelele case for a local musican. He plays ukelele professionally, and wanted a very durable case that could stand up to a beating if need be. And he wanted it made out of recycled wood, if possible he requested. So With luck I chose a very weathered piece of 3/4 inch ply and took...
  9. Japanese Stool (Hand Tools Only)

    I built this Japanese stool for someone, and wanted to use only hand tools. The stool has 12 mortise and tenon joints, and is glued together. The lumber is recyled from an area construction site. The top was shaped using tons of saw kerfs as stop cuts along the top to the desired depth of the...
  10. Cystic Fibrosis Charity Wine Rack

    I was approached a month ago about building a wine rack for an auction to raise money for cystic fibrosis research. Without hesitation I happily accepted the challenge. The nature of my business is to use reclaimed materials so, naturally, a reclaimed wine barrel was the first thing to come to...

    This is a retro/modern table inspired by Googie architecture style. I call it The Jetsons Table. I made it from reclaimed cedar fence boards. Please watch the build video here:
  12. Recycled Pallet Campaign Desk

    This desk was made for a client using a recycled pallet from a local construction site. The pallet was made from Austrailian Pine, some type of cedar as far as I can tell. Very beautifully raggy wood textures. The client wanted something with a "campaign twist" on it, so I added the canvas drop...
  13. 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.
  14. "George"

    George was the nickname my sister gave me as kids! So he was created out of birch on the lathe initially and then carved for further details. Painted with acrylics. Always loved puppets!
  15. The savage workbench

    Finally cleared out one side of garage. Since I hear the thing you need most is a workbench, even if what you want to build is a workbench… I built this twisted bastard from salvaged wood. I figured just a wood vise and surface would be a great help. I was correct. Top is a salvaged laminate...
  16. Sofa Table w/Wine Boxes

    Almost all this wood is found or out of a renovation project. The legs are 'stickers', the wooden pieces that lumber yards use under the stacks of wood. It took time to find 3 wine boxes that were very close in dimensions. The pull handles are from Lee Valley. The drawers simply slide on...
  17. Metal Leg Side Table

    We were asked to do something different with this piece. Typically we work with reclaimed Wood only, but our customer wanted a table with metal legs to match a few other pieces they already had. We had some experience with basic welding and metal working, so we gave it a shot and this what...
  18. Cantilever End Table

    This table is made 100% out of scrap wood that was destined to be burned. The boards that I decided to use were full of flaws and were so unique and colorful that the flaws had to be designed around. This End Table has so many flaws that it should have been thrown out; but the flaws make this...
  19. Earring Box

    This is a box I made for a pair of earrings I bought for my wife for Christmas. This box was the most fun I've had with a project in a long time. Very simple in it's construction and very small. The box is red cedar and birdseye maple with a cherry lip to help seat the lid. Finish is shellac...
