Introduction: Reclaimed Wood Panels

Picture of Reclaimed Wood Panels
Here is a great and simple way to reuse old fence wood.
  • Cut off the bottoms that have rotted out.
  • Layout in straight rows or create a pattern such as herringbone on a piece of 1/2" plywood
  • Use screws or nails to attach.
  • Cut shape out using router for circles and complex curves or a saw for straight lines.
  • Hang on the wall
Don't over complicate this project, leaving it simple will bring more attention to the use of reclaimed wood and add the minimalist style.

Where are the actual instructions? Without those it feels more like a "suggestible."

loss. and if I used a spare spool of cable like this?
I only have to paint it bright colors because I have gray walls in the living room. what do you think? there is a chance that it will give?

I think that would be a great use of large wire spools! Would love to see a photo of it.

The large panel is 6' and is about 150lbs. I used 2, 300lbs hooks just to be sure it wouldn't come off the wall. Between the reclaimed and 1/2" ply, there would be plenty of room to carve out an area for the clock components.
