Reclaimed Wood Projects

Unread post #1 by balarila » Tue Aug 07, 2018 8:20 am

Went to Policarpio's 2nd Hand Lumber Shop in Taytay the other weekend. Got some bunches of tanguile (a few yakal, too) for some projects am considering.
Was amazed that, with all the wood I got, I paid only P3690!

First project is a coffee table requested by SWMBO. I will just do the shelf underneath a class top with a metal frame. I will have the metal frame done elsewhere. Tried my hand at welding and, while my skill is passable, I do not find as much enjoyment from it as woodworking.

The design:

These planks will be jointed.

Ripped the edges a bit. Sanded the thick paint off the pink plank. Then marked where the biscuits will go.

I'd rather add life to my years than years to my life.

Somehow can't open the link, Joey. I think this one may work: https://www.amazon.com/Air-locker-profe ... dpSrc=srch

Seems like a handy tool. For now, I use a magnet for finding the nails, then use whatever works to remove them: clawhammer, awl, old screwdriver, brute force.

A review says it breaks easily, though. Did you have direct experience with this tool, Ricky?

No experience with that particular tool but my concrete nailers are air locker and was good for 7yrs until the seals broke at the same time
