Salvaged & Reused Timber in the Home & Garden

When I was growing up we didn't throw out anything that could be repaired or reused. I never discard perfectly good materials just because they no longer serve their original purpose, the following projects are just a few of the many ibles that include salvaged timber including a shameless plug for a couple of my own. I hope that they encourage more people to follow the example. Many thanks to all those iblers who allowed me to include their work.
