Reclaimed wood


Black Cherry,  resawn from a floor joist.     Quartersawn White Oak, from a barn rafter.   Glued up the Cherry into a panel, cut handles in the QSWO , and miter the corners.   Wood came from an old garage that was torn down, my cost was just the gas to hual the "junk" away.  About a pick up truck load.    The tray is for use when the stove is NOT in use.

This is the first of at least three suchtrays i have to build.   All out of reclaimed wood from an old barn that was torn down.   Price?    Nada!

AAAAHHHH! It's amazing the beauty a sixteenth of an inch to an old surface will give to any species of wood....nice work by not only recycling, but bringing a discarded material back to life.

I find it sad that so many tobacco and hay barns in the Midwest are being torn down just as fast as a new subdivision is being raised.
