Little crates full of goodies

These crates were built from repurposed shipping crates that were used to ship tractors! The cable was repurposed from an old seed cleaning machine.

There was quite a bit more work and cost involves in these than I anticipated. Since I left the nails and staples embedded in the wood I chewed through a lot of sanding belts. They used a hefty amount of finishing materials, too. Although they look rough and beat up (and they are) the finish is silky-smooth. The finished product was a real pleasant surprise and the boxes are handy for any number of things. I built one for the house and we keep the remotes and wii controls in it.

I initially made six of them but currently have enough materials cut for six more. Will build to suit. Email me if you have custom ideas.

Price: $85.00

A Bench from a Pallet

This bench found a happy home in Rhode Island, a perfect match for the classic New England style. This bench has a bottom brace made with small side and is wide enough for a bookshelf.

The top is made from a repurposed oak pallet. The edge is wrapped with a boarder for a clean, tidy look that offsets the beaten and battered oat slats.

Price: $350.00 (SOLD)

Modified Nantucket Bench

This is a bench made in a modified Nantucket style. The customer requested the bottom brace be made into a bookshelf, a mortis and tenon joint and clean, straight lines add a touch of classic New England style.

The top is made of rough hewn Black Ash milled locally around 1960.

Price: $275.00 (SOLD)

A little black box with me poems in it...

Box made of rough hewn Black Ash, milled circa 1960. Hardware chemically aged and distressed. The wood was "cupped" (the edges of the board were curled up), so I built the sides, bottom and lid match up with the cupping.

Price: $225.00 (SOLD)
