Cut pieces and ideas

It has been a while since we have had chance to post anything.

We have been working on a lot of marketing, preparing some accessories for a show we are going to next week and recruiting more work.

I recently came across some old re-claimed trim molding from an architectrual antiques warehouse. Boy did I have fun searching and looking through the rooms and rooms of old woodworking and furniture!

I gathered some pieces form an old home from downtown Charleston and thought I would put them together in some picture frames or mirror frames.

Spent some time fabricating and shaping the pieces into a couple of pieces I hope to sell soon. Will have the finished products up soon.

Looks good.

I suggest you test the old paint for lead. You most likely will need to strip the old molding and refinish it.

"Use a paint scraper. Lead paint isn't going to hurt you, just don't eat it or let your kids or pets eat it. You can use a mask for protection if it makes you feel better. "
"Newer paints should be less harmful. Most latex paints contain titanium-not good for you, but not nearly as harmful as lead."I found the above 2 comments from a book I have on home inspections. I find it interesting that even the NEW stuff is no longer safe ! I am concerned as well, I do a lot of building from reclaimed materials.

Being a demo contractor and a reclaimed lumber guy Lead Based Paints aren't a huge deal but shouldnt be taken lightly. I would suggest wearing a respirator and a shop coat. Wash your hands and take your coat off before being around kids (especially those under 6, theyre brains are still forming and growning, and lead poisoning can inhibit brain function) and pets too (they lick everything).

If its flaking you can scrape off the loose flakes and seal it with a heavy coat of primer, (technical term is encapsulation) then paint away. If you want to sand and stain it, definately wear a respirator designed for small particles and wash the material with a TSP solution or basic dishsoap and water. A HEPA vac would be a great idea to clean up the dust and such but they are super expensive.

BTW .. i love the look of the old millwork for frames .. you may have given me some new ideas.

And Rando, i could help you out with any lead paint questions you may have, just send me a message.

Finished mirrors

After careful cleaning and sealing with lacquer the finished products ended up very classy looking.

I like it. Nicely done. I am at a stage where I enjoy using reclaimed material more than I do new ! Sometimes more thinking and work to accomplish a simple thing, but it seems more rewarding when it is finished.
