Reclaiming Wood

Sunday, October 20th, 2013


3 x 14 planks seven to eight feet long.  First, they were denailed.


These came out of ten planks.  Some planks had none or just brads, others were full of nails.


The planks were then cut in half on a radial arm saw.  Two passes to get through the thickness, flipping the planks between passes.


Then the planks were split on a table saw.  Again, two passes, flipping end-for-end to keep the same face on the fence.  Clear yellow pine, 40 cents a board foot plus lots of labor.
