Because my shop vac went belly up and I have yet to get my Laguna Dust Collecter (and that is going to be sweet!:) ) I have to wear a mask and deal with all of the dust that is settles every where one would like it not to.

Zakopane in the Sierras.
This is our resource. Old reclaimed beams and structural pieces of TEAK from old warehouses and farmhouses in Indonesia, Malaysia and China. This wood is then kiln dried and "re-mann’d" by surfacing, cutting and gluing up panels for "re-manufacturing" into cabinets, furniture, architectural accoutrements and other use-able consumer products. Great care is taken to avoid hidden nails, etc as that destroys woodworking machinery and blades.
This is the ultimate form of re-use, often confused with what today’s "greenies" refer to as sustainability… TEAK is one of the hardest woods on the Planet, and will last 1000 years.

This is a little ring box I made from a chunk of mahogany that I reclaimed from the scrap bin at Ye Olde Day Job. It’s actually one of several that I’ve made over the years from a variety of woods that flow through my workshop. I’m always amazed, though, at the complex character of mahogany’s grain once it takes on a finish (in this case, an oil and wax mixture, followed by several applications of shellac). I hope I wouldn’t be out of line in mentioning that I sell boxes like this and a variety of other woodcraft at my online shop (smilemoon.etsy.com).
