    Passing some wasteland today I spotted these, they are solid oak.

    Well, I was not going leave them, no way. I don’t drive these days, so I had to carry them about a mile home. Good job done don’t you think. πŸ™‚

    wow not so much wasteland more like the land that keeps giving your a lucky finder we cant wait to see what it becomes

    Funny how people must have passed by there innumerable times without thinking anything of the “junk” sitting there. Hard to imagine a better example of “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

    Great find and well worth the work, I’m sure!


    Did you carry them all at once? You are strong man Ken)) Nice boxes on your bench))

    Toronto, Canada


    Thanks guys, Serhiy, thanks buddy, no it took me two trips it was heavy HaHa It was hard going on the last trip. πŸ˜‰


    Nice find Ken, You have rescued that wood and now you can give it a new life has something interesting and/or useful.

    Thanks Robin. That will be a challenge resawing that lot into something useable.

    Now if I had a bandsaw, if only. πŸ™‚

    Hope you get enough out of it to be usable good luck.

    Great find Ken it will be interesting to see what you can get out of it,based on what i have seen on the various sites it does not have to be blemish free they iether leave the defects as a feature or fill the voids with epoxy resin

    Wigan, Lancs. England :


    Thanks David, I have been having a look around the different websites, and you are right. The defects really can add some nice character, depending on what you make.

    I’m thinking of saving for a bandsaw, not just for this, it would also be great for getting thinner stock for boxes and drawer sides and the like.
