Here are some details about my project:
Category Other
Style Traditional

What materials did you use? bowling alley hardwood flooring from my neighbors barn.. it was all stuff just laying around.. leftover fencing boards and 4x4 pieces and leftover siding - this is a totally recyled bench and wall.. very eco friendly as it's all being used instead of being burned or in a landfill.


What are you most proud of? started with no walls, no floor, no bench.. just tools. scored the used bowling alley flooring (hardwood) from my neighbor that she'd had out in her barn for 10 years and was never going to use for anything and I had some 1/2 sheets left over from siding the deck area of my house and leftover materials from my fence outside.. and poof a wall and a bench perfect for a shop area and most importantly none of it ended up getting wasted or end up in a landfill.


What advice would you give someone starting this project? this is a pretty simple project.. no drawing required.. just a little imagination and some good shaped leftovers. re-use re-cycle and very inexpensive.
