Console table with reclaimed, wood and you're, taking the reclaimed and you're, adding just a touch of history to it. Correct in this case, which all reclaimed wood really has, whether it's worth telling a storage to me is like so wonderful because it's not a piece - and this is kind of up your alley. Aesthetically too, taking sort of old stuff that has history you're not only keeping out of the landfill but you're, creating these sort of pieces of art really in your alley, meaning what we're talking about her new home going to Tim, and I are looking at visas of Land because we're gonna build from the ground up, but we're gonna build sort of rustic log home with a lot of reclaimed wood.
Let me know when you're done, I want to come and see you wait for them at. I feel an off-site shoot coming to sponsor the bill. So these were the floorboards from the building just down the street that they tore down that we saw earlier, it was beautifully, got a lot of wood, and these were the sort of the thickest which I think is gonna make great Shelby. We actually have a video of the building coming down. It was really a hazard. It was actually I'm sure it was historic. They needed to pull it down because it was dangerous, but you know John Wayne has shot in western town. It's really there to think out there.
They had those buildings all have written crap, but it's great. I always felt like. I was eight feet tall when I walked down Western see because I know well, it's nice and so the real secret right now reclaim is really hot. But the trick to me to making it appropriate to today and making it work in your home is adding a little bit of industrial enough sand modernist to it because you don't want these sort of. You know dusty old. You need to clean it up and you need to add a touch of modern to it really make it applicable to today.
So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take the floorboards and I'm adding galvanized pipe, which you can get at any Home Depot. Lowe's, you can see it over there flanges and these all come per-cut and per screws, so there's no cutting of pipe. No anything you say: you're gonna have 24 inches. They have 12 inches, they have the flanges. You pick it all up to you. They look at me crazy because I'm like kind of semi assembling it in the aisle of loads like well this work, I would need longer, but you can see where I started today.
So basically I got the former. I think this was one long board that the construction there was tons of dirt on it. So I got one and I measured it on the longer board, so I would have two of the same length and then I just took your standard jigsaw and cut that edge. You're gonna have like a more raw edge on one end, but you can always, you know, use a little bit of stain right and then what I did was, I guess, marked eight inches and one inch down on both pieces, and I got my flanges.
