  1. Cane Stand

    I only have the one picture. I needed a way to store my canes when I'm not using them and came up with this. Arts and Crafts inspired using salvaged oak from two table tops and an old cabinet door that were too far gone to save. The legs are from a downed tree from last winter. They're still...
  2. what can $8 worth of solid lumber get you...

    Furniture with the markings of a past life… I got this lumber from a recycle lumber yard. They pulled it from an old bank building in Sacramento, built around the 1930's. I found one really weather beaten plank which I think might have been from the building's facade. I chose this plank to be...

  4. Harmonica box with mini wood hinges

    This spalted mystery wood (maple?) was found on the bottom of a pallet. There wasn't much of the wood with the splated look, but I had the perfect small project for it. A little box. The sappy part of the story: Years ago my grandfather gave me a harmonica that belonged to his father. Not...

    This a picnic table I built from 2 cedar trees cut down by county workers. I cut 4 eight foot logs about 8" in diameter and sawed them for this table.The table is 8 feet long . Finish is minwax spar urethane. Love that cedar! Thanks for looking
  6. Salvaged Maple "Tao" Coffee Table

    This Table is made from 100 year old salvaged maple, walnut, and wenge wedges. The maple came from a barn deconstruction near my shop. It was a really neat project, and there were some difficulties along the way for sure, but I grew as a woodworker, and thats why we do this stuff right? I made a...
  7. Salvaged Wood Birdhouse

    For the past 15 years my dad has been hiding left over cedar wood that he used to build our fence. I finally put it to use and created this birdhouse with it. I also used left over paint samples from my bathroom to paint the exterior. Hopefully it will be rented out this summer…
  8. Kitchen Island

    The kitchen island will be a Christmas gift to my daugther-in-law. It is the last of the salvaged wood that I got from a wagon shed. The plans I saved from October 2012 Woodworkers Journal.
  9. Another lumber cart

    I finally built myself a lumber cart, totally out of material I had in my garage shop! I had a bookcase that was a built-in in the house we had in back in Illinois. This bookcase was in the house when we bought it so it must be over 50 years old. I don't know why I kept it but it was in my...
  10. Step Stool for My Grand Daughter

    After Sunday dinner my daughter asked if I needed a woodworking project, and of course I said yes. She said that she needs a step stool for our 20 month old grand daughter to be able to wash her hands. So we went into the bathroom and measured how high it needed to be. We determined that it...

  12. Salvaged wood bookshelf/dog nook

    This weekend I drove up to Salem, OR to pick up some wood salvaged from the Muir & McDonald tannery built in 1903. (You can see a little clip about it on the History Channel here) The wood is Douglas fir and is especially dark due to the decades of tannin use. This was my first project with...
  13. Tailgate Bench

    This was another luck of the find projects. I came across this Chevrolet pickup tailgate at the local salvage yard and couldn't resist getting it just to make it into a bench. It seats 4 and has a lot of character. Combined with some salvaged wood, it turned into the perfect county-chic...
  14. 2"x4"s from the thirties to a modern style bed.

    I have a client who loves the classic fir grain from old lumber. He said "the more nail holes , the better". I also made two small cutouts with doors for their cell phone chargers and grain matched the doors. I used plywood to build the base and put a drawer in each side.
  15. Elm TV stand/coffee table. 1785 New England barn beam transformed!

    I present my greatest "rescued from the woodpile" salvaged piece to date. Where I live and the proximity to some great Timber framers, from time to time I get asked to help out with a barn restore or tear-down. This particular barn had collapsed few years back during a heavy snow accumulation...
  16. Simple bandsaw boxes

    Over a year ago I posted a bandsaw box project in which I said it was the first of a set of four bandsaw boxes that I did at the same time, assembly-line style. I finally finished the last two yesterday. My problem was handles. I didn't know of a way to make them look good made out of wood...
  17. Driftwood Horse bust

    Hello Lj's Summer flew by hope you all got to make a bunch of saw dust. Here is another piece my lady and finished up, it turned out to be a pretty strong piece. I have a few more newbies to share pretty soon. Thanks Jeffro www.facebook.com/jeffrouitto www.jeffrouitto.com @jeffro_art for...
  18. salvaged pencil

    I've got quite the pen turning bug going on right now… Have a bunch of prepped blanks, a few turned blanks waiting for assembly (or me to choose if gold or platinum looks better). In the midst of all this pen turning (Tim, you're really re-ignited a spark here), I found a few extra 7mm euro pen...
  19. Belly Up To The Bar! Solid Reclaimed Hemlock Drinks Distribution Node

    The third image shows the horrible 'treehouse bar' that was in place when we bought this resort/restaurant. When our first timber salvage cycle was complete, the immediate priority was to build something to showcase the wood from the bottom of the bay. We decided that a proper pub-style bar...
  20. Frame for wild-west art piece

    My wife had a beautiful fine, wild-west art tile hanging on the wall that looked really lonely without a frame. i finally broke down and put together a frame using some wood that we salvaged from our old barn when it came down a few years ago. The wood is well over 100 years old and I left all...
