    Hi all, i've made the base of my 3’ x 5’ kitchen island and am now at the stage of getting the wood for the 5'x9' top. I am getting 2"x8"x10' reclaimed chestnut that is at least 100 yr old. The island top will over-hang about on 3 sides of the base and will be supported by 2 legs and one big...

    Hi everybody, For my first attempt at woodworking I'm (ambitiously) trying to build a dinner table using reclaimed wood. To start with, I got a batch of 14 pieces of backside-planed reclaimed oak barn lumber off a shop on ebay. Since I'm entirely new to woodworking I have a bunch of questions...

    N00b here, so apologies for my ignorance - I recently was given access to an 120 year old barn to take as much wood as I'd like. Plan is to use it for an accent wall - I've seen several posts for and against sanding it before assembling. The last thing I want is to lose the texture and color...

    I obtained some weathered pieces of cedar wood and have been stripping and sanding them to prepare to use them as interior benches for my kitchen. The image I posted is of what the wood looks like right now. I would love to retain the light color, but don't know if that's possible with a stain...

    I am building a coffee table about of barnwood and pallets. The barnwood I am going to do a clear water base coat on but I am trying to figure out what to do with the pallet base. I would like to use a darker stain but there is some cool lettering on the pallets that I don't want to loose by...

    Hi guys. Trying to make this queen size platform bed for my son. I've got the inner part (where the mattress sits) down but I'm trying to figure out the best option for the 8-9" edging on the 3 sides. One plan showed grooves cut out on the base for 2X4's to rest in and then the cantilevered...

    This project starts with me finding some reclaimed wood on Craigslist. I went to buy only a few pieces to bring home for a small project, but then the salvage guy made me a deal that I couldn’t refuse. He needed the wood off of his trailer and actually offered to drive 40 + miles to deliver...

    A request for a "small dining table" came in and immediately I knew what I want to create, or should I say "copy". A very similar table caught my eyes and I wanted to make my own version of a frame made of metal kept in raw format with a tabletop so natural that you'd have to add a glass to make...
