Which Wood – Reclaimed

In our final (for the moment final) Which Wood Series – let’s focus on reclaimed wood. You never know what you will come across and it’s exciting to see the results!

Remember our first serving tray?e171e-reclaimed-hickory-serving-tray-ready-first-coat-doneReclaimed hickory from an old shipping pallet – no kidding. We were quite impressed with the outcome.reclaimed-hickory-glued-clampedSince then, we continue to look for opportunities to use reclaimed wood. We love it, the clients love it, it’s all good.

Something New

Bud made this serving tray out of an old shipping pallet. Crazy huh?
 
Let’s take a look at how he did it!

First, cut up an old shipping pallet….really?

Yes, that’s how it started.  The hickory (we at least think it’s hickory) is looking pretty good.  One clamped up and one ready to be be cut to length.

Looks like we are making 2 and the pieces are coming together nicely.

Test fit, very important.

Bottom needs to be trimmed, then we are almost done.  

Ready for finish, starting with the bottom.
What a difference a little Watco Danish Oil makes!
Something new from something old, Voila!
