I am in the process of building a new workshop in my garage. I am pretty much complete and wanted to show the finished part of my reclaimed wood wall. The wood was from a local university wood shop and had just been sitting around. I ripped the 10-12 inch wide boards to about 3 inches and made the pattern on the wall.
I don’t know what species of wood is all on the wall. I tried to mix the light and dark to create a nice pattern. The boards were secured with construction adhesive as well as 2 inch 16 gauge brads shot in with a nail gun. I had to get them into the studs behind the wall for there to be any benefit as they just slip right out of the drywall. I feel bad for whoever will want to take this wall down some day but with how pleased I am with the results I know it won’t be me.
The empty drywall area is where one of my workbench stations will go. Can’t wait to do some work with this in the background.
