Corner TV unit

Hi,I made this from 100% recycled timbers,a combination of Oregon for the frame, cypress pine T&G floor boards for the top and hardwood fence palings for the bottom shelf.IMG_7143.jpegIMG_7145.jpegIMG_7148.jpeg

Looks fantastic @Beachbox. Many thanks for sharing. 

 

Do you have any tips for Workshop members who would like to build something similar?

Re: Corner TV unit

Where do you source your timber @Beachbox?

Re: Corner TV unit

Hi Isobel, I have a few sources. There is a second hand building yard local to me at Woy Woy where I get some timber from, also from time to time my son will demolish a house or part of a house with his excavation business and also I have had people I know call me up when they are putting in a new fence. You will be surprised who will contact you when word gets out that you make furniture from recycled materials. Most people genuinely like to see materials being re-used and brought back to life in a different form.
