The Reclaimed Woodworker
21 One-of-a-Kind Projects to Build with Recycled Lumber
Smart projects that give new life to old lumber.
The Reclaimed Woodworker provides inspiration and easy-to-follow, step-by-step instruction for woodworkers of all skill levels who want to make well-built, stylish furniture and furnishings from reclaimed lumber. Featuring 21 projects ranging from the ever-popular sliding barn door to chairs with vintage charm, each project is designed to use upcycled materials without sacrificing style. Each project is a modern and fresh but based on tried-and-true woodworking techniques.
Replete with beautiful photographs, inspired designs, and accessible building instructions, The Reclaimed Woodworker is a comprehensive guidebook to using recycled lumber to build your own furniture and furnishings. Because there is more to finding and using recycled lumber than tearing apart old pallets, you’ll learn how to source environmentally conscious wood in unexpected places. The icing on the cake? Once you know how to find them, these materials often provide a cost savings over traditionally sourced lumber. The Reclaimed Woodworker is a how-to book, but it’s also a celebration of the creativity in reclaiming wood and discovering the possibilities for using it in your home.
