Not as in depth as some of your projects, but I refinished some railway wood for shelves and used shiplap distressed wood to refinish a small area of the house where I demoed the drywall...

I LOVE reclaimed lumber. The character of checked wood, rusty nail holes, distress makes for great pieces. I picked up a guy's maple floor that he pulled up for....ugg...carpet.... 800 sq feet of wood. I've been using it for projects for years. Got some barn wood from a buddy... still looking for a good use for it.

He's in college so, only here in the summer. All "his" stuff is at school right now. This is what's left.. but who doesn't love Mickey

I am also a fan of reclaimed lumber, though it can be a pain to work with.

I like the nail holes - just not removing all the nails! Best finds are ones that are already de-nailed.

yea... but you still gotta run a metal detector over it. One nail will ruin an edge. I missed a nail in a board I was planing... and now the planer puts out a flat board with a little raised line always... blurg!

These projects are really awesome! I haven't done much carpentry woodworking, but did some carvings as a hobby. Just three examples I made from mahogany: The BK2000 backglass, 5" thick and to scale of the actual glass. Next two are Japanese panel art (approx. 12" X 6") and a thrasher shark from a crotch cut branch (approx. 2' in length X 6" thickness)

Dude! Nice work! How did you do that? Knives or a grinder tool.

Thanks! Used a variety of power and hand tools. Started with a router and/or grinder to clear out excess and make different levels of depth. Then, used dremel, punch tools, knives rasps & files to shape and detail.

Really nice work.. all three pieces. How would you mount such a piece? Lighting would seem tricky. Although I can't imagine photos will capture the depth of the piece.

The shark is on a wall near a window which captures the light fairly well. It's not heavy, so it hangs off eye hooks and nails. The BK2000 is underneath the shark, angled back on a painter's easel since its bulkier. The Japanese piece is light enough to stand on its own. Lighting definitely is a challenge, depending on where the sun is. May have to use some pinball LEDs to uncover those shadows

Built these for yard art, went for the "rustic" look. There will be a watermill added soon that will tie together with the water tower...

Cool builds! I'm looking forward to the water wheel. I love kinetic sculptures.

That barn-door cabinet is amazing. The scale and finish is beautiful!!
