// Project - Mantel

Mantel // This mantle is a great addition to a new fireplace. Not only does it provide a nice shelf for items of value, but it also creates a beautiful contrast between itself and the rock wall.

A local customer was doing a home renovation in their basement by re-configuring a room and re-cladding the aged facade of a corner fireplace. After the fireplace had it's makeover in stone, the owner then decided to add some character by installing a wood mantel. Provided in rough-sawn format - courtesy of King's Arrow Antique Lumber - we selected a Wormy Chestnut header that was salvaged from a barn in western New York state. After cleaning the mantel, cutting it to size, and finishing it with a tung oil, we installed it directly above the opening in the fireplace. The final look is fantastic!

As with all Re:klaim projects, we want to inform you of recycled content. This project was created using 100% recycled content from a local salvaged/reclaimed lumber company.

Meet Mantel, a Re:build project at Re:klaim Industriale.

// Update - MBC Rock Wall Cladding

Update // We again accomplished quite a bit of work last week on the MBC ROCK Student Ministry Entryway project. Now that we have disassembled the necessary pallets and cleaned, sorted, and cut all of the material, the next step is assembly. Here is the process for attaching the pallet lumber to the substrate (in this case chipboard):

  • Layout // The boards are placed into rows after hand-inspecting the spacing and joint alignment. Each board needs to be carefully inspected to ensure no large spaces or misaligned joints end up in the completed panel.
  • Gluing + Nailing // Every board in glued with Titebond II and then fastened in place with a brad-nailer. Nails are shot into the side and ends to help compress open or expanded joints.
  • Trimming // After completing each panel, we trim the ends to the final dimension +2". Final trim cuts will be done in the field. 

Here are some more photos of the wall cladding in progress:

// Pallets + Design

Pallets are ubiquitous. Not only are they available behind every major retail store next to the dumpsters, but Craigslist is flooded with hundreds of free or cheap ($1/pc) posts every day. They are readily available, they have dual usability as either a reclaimed unit or dis-assembled materials, and they all have a story to tell. Some designers have recycled them into benches or seating. Some are converting them into desks and workstations. Others are retaining the original shape with minor modifications and installing them in their design space as-is. While there are thousands of DIY projects that have been posted by bloggers and designers, some have caught our eye through impressive functionality or elegant design. Here are a few of our favorite projects involving pallets:

Re:Create Projects // We again worked on two separate bespoke projects last week for customers and we want to give you a status update on both of them. Read up on the projects below:

Spool Table // If you missed last week's post, we are fabricating a custom coffee table from reclaimed cable spools and iron pipe for a customer in Arlington, VA. Last week we accomplished a significant amount of work including hardware cleaning/priming/painting, prelim sanding, finish sanding, surface prep, and finish prep. We are hoping to start finishing this week. Here are some shots and details on the project:

 

Vanity/Shelving // Work continued on the vanity/shelving this last week. We continued with fabrication on the vanity top, machining on the shelving, hardware cleaning/priming/painting, prelim sanding, finish sanding, surface prep, finish prep , and staining. Here are some shots and details on the project:

Vanity/Shelving // We are also fabricating a custom vanity/washbasin and a dual shelf from a reclaimed maple workbench and iron pipe for a customer in Vienna, VA. Work included cleaning, surface prep, prelim sanding, hardware fabrication, and machining. Here are some shots and details on the project:

 Beachwood // Dark grain lines mixed into sand-colored planks floating on a subtle blue ocean of metal structural steel.

Making land at 18” high and 47.5” wide with a 2” thick solid pine top, this is the perfect centerpiece for any beach-lover or industrial-modern living space. The hairpin legs were finished with two coats of Maui Blue enamel direct screwed to the top. Three coats of Danish Oil - hand rubbed to a beautiful finish. Topped off with original hardware painted with two coats of black enamel, this table is perfect for those looking to add flair to their living space or covered patio.

We saved the best for last: it has a built-in bottle opener on the belly of the table so you can make sure your cold drinks don’t stay sealed.

Like all re:klaim tables, this table is 100% reclaimed/upcycled spool wood to continue an environmentally conscious effort to reuse.

States // Reclaimed pallet struts combined with a pride for one's home state make a great gift or an interesting cutting board.

These state-shaped cutting boards were fabricated out of the structural portions of a pallet. After removing all of the nails, the pallet mains were milled down to create a flat, workable surface and then hand-shaped to closely resemble two different states. They were then sanded and coated in a butcher block, food-safe oil. 

Like all Re:klaim products, these cutting boards are 100% reclaimed/upcycled wood to continue an environmentally conscious effort to reuse.
