Open Shop: Do Your Own Project

Our student Aaron made this beautiful glued-up table top in one session of Open Shop. The walnut was milled at his grandfather’s farm, and he planed and jointed it before gluing. He added the pipe base at home, and the result is fantastic!

Customer Survey Gift Card Winner

Congratulations to Amber Gribben, winner of our customer survey gift card drawing! She has been a regular customer since we opened in our original location, and also is a volunteer instructor of our Worm Composting 101 class. As a hobbyist woodworker, she frequently stops by to check out the latest items because she enjoys bringing older pieces back to life. Here are before and after photos of a 1950’s era cabinet that she purchased at RX and refurbished to a fantastic result.

Our customer Zac made this coffee table with some sweet chevrons from plaster lathe that another customer pulled out of his gut rehab project. Great use for a material that is so often thrown away!

Check out these charming kindling and firewood boxes made from our wide plank old growth boards by our customer Tom. After planing the boards, forming the boxes with dovetails, and adding some decorative carving, he took them to a fine finish with a smoothing plane, card scraper and wax. We still have some of this beautiful old wood in stock, grab some before it is too late!

Moss Design refurbished an industrial loft in Chicago, taking it back to its original finishes  of brick and timber. They used some of our reclaimed wood in the fireplace surround to complement the old growth joists.

Our customers Laura and Nick picked up one of our stainless steel restaurant tables and surfaced the top with our tongue and groove pine from the western US. The grey striping on this wood shows the tree was killed by the western pine beetle. Their diy project turned out with fantastic results!

We still have a large lot of the tables and wood available - http://www.flickr.com/photos/rebuildingexchange/12979405314/in/photostream
