    Making up hot pad boards out of old packing crates. Plywood sections become the base, slates get trimmed down to frame. Center is covered in wine corks collected from friends at a local resturant. Wood is stained brown with leftover stain. Corks are glued on with caulking and work great for setting hot plates and other items on the table.

    Default recycled wood

    Hi everyone. here are a few projects i did this past week. they are both made from 8 yr old reclaimed fence boards.
    the first is a 6ft waterfall . the second is a 4 ft sq water garden. they will both be lined with rubber liners.
    they both cost me $ 15.00 to build ( nails)

    Really nice! I can't even get a nail in straight, so I'm definitely impressed. Can I move into one of your extreme birdhouses! They are nicer than my own home!

    That's beautiful work! How long does it take you do make one of those EXTREME birdhouses? That's more like a bird castle.

    Thank you Wendy
    it takes anywhere from 1 day for the smaller houses and up to 2 weeks for the large houses. this is one i am working on now. it is over 5 ft high and will have over 90 apartments.it is made from 120 yr old barn board.
