The flooring for the main deck of the house. Re-claimed red/yellow pine milled to spec by Watson Spring! 220 square feet. .75" x 5".
Steel fully exposed. everything (almost) OUT!
CLEAR THE DECKS!
" Re-claimed" means lots of character and a lot that is not use-able. It took me whole day to pick through the pile and glean what was useful. Lots of character.
Gonna get dirty and sweaty and make a huge mess Me n' this piece of wood wanted to have our picture taken together Advice from a novice to a novice: When trying to cut multiple 90 degree cuts, use the framing square as a guide. Hold it as far away from the line you want to cut (eye-ball it) as the saw guard is wide and hold your saw against the straight edge as you cut the wood.
Huge mess after getting all that could be used out of the stack
Totally random lengths of what was useful. So I made myself a little library from shortest to longest and just got started. I wanted to make as few cuts as possible, and have as many joints rest of joists as possible.
First I figured how many rows would be needed to get from port to starboard side with un-cut rows of boards, and then split the difference of the remaining space. I cut the first row half of that total distance and then just got started... laying wood around the storage hatch openings
Paper to make the pattern for the curve around the bathroom wall
Put my favorite pieces in the hall-way, but that's weak praise because so many pieces have so much character. RE-CLAIMED WOOD! The smell of the fresh cut pine is so invigorating!
used my baseball bat to tap them into place
This opening is so large so that if I ever need to I can easily remove the steel and crawl into the basement through this hole. 2'x2'
Tight fit around the hearth
floor of closet/storage/tiny bedroom for one of my Japanese friends.
