Easy reclaimed wood projects,sales plans templates,wood pallet garden fence,wood spice racks for walls - Review
I love projects that make use of old materials, especially when they take just a few easy steps to complete. I wanted to incorporate high-powered neodymium magnets into a project, and I had a small pile of leftover walnut wood scraps and old Douglas fir floorboards. Reclaimed wood furniture is very interesting mostly because it has a history and this makes it charming and unique. This quick and easy reclaimed-wood knife rack from Nick Ward-Bopp is something you could probably finish in a couple hours, and as he points out below, it’s a great way to make use of empty space on the side of your fridge or on your kitchen walls or cabinets. I decided to marry the two materials and make a reclaimed-wood magnetic knife rack and put it on the side of the fridge, which would otherwise be dead space.
There are loads of high quality food safe finishes out there that you can use to protect yourself from recycled woods that may contain lead paint. I work with reclaimed wood all the time and my baby son had crazy high lead levels in his blood when tested a couple of years ago.
I’ve got to say this is a perfect example of what happens when a trendy form (lead paint, reclaimed wood, rusty knives that no one in their right mind would use) trumps all reason and function.
I might gussy up my version a bit by mixing in fresh wood and possibly painting a design on it.
I used the original hinge screws and wood as a clever way to secure it to the side of the fridge.
Look for wood polishes or sealers with ingredients that have natural wax and oil resins from linseed, sunflower, peanut, walnut, and carnauba. You can take a few pieces of wood of different dimensions and out them together to form a panel. All you have to do is cut the wood to the desired dimensions and then mount the shelves onto the wall.
