Cabinet made from old floorboards

December 1, 2013


Dirty old floorboards with rusty nails; which I have to take out first before planing one side of the boards, the side that will become the inside of the cabinet.


First I build a frame also from reclaimed wood put it together with mortice and tenon joints.


Dress up the frame with the boards, by simply glue and nail them to the frame.

Made the drawer with proper dovetails and the doors with mortice and tenon joints. I will get the glass for the doors as soon as I have another order for glass.


These pulls where left over from kitchen cabinets I made earlier.

    Brilliant, so good to see old wood still be used instead of burned or even worse let it rot away. In this way the tree lasts forever.

    Nice to see boards being recycled πŸ™‚ i’ve also done various projects with old floorboards, it takes more work but the end result always looks more interesting than new stuff.
