in part two of my series designed to make reclaiming wood and making things with it accessible to everyone, i show how to get pretty much all the tools you need, used and for cheap. i spend $25 at a second hand shop on hand tools and in part 3-5 (to come) i prove their worth.

these tools and a box made with them will be auctioned to benefit the fresh air fund. the auction will be on ebay and begins feb 21. when i post part 3. a link will come with it.

    yes, i did get lucky with this pile. it's basically only cedar, but still useful.

    contractors hate throwing the stuff away, too, (it costs them) but often they don't have the time or manpower to reclaim it themselves. introduce yourself. give them your number. they may even call!
