I’ve always been a big fan of reclaimed wood, so when my GF’s neighbor had their fence replaced, I grabbed about 10 sections so as to have a bunch of weathered cedar. It’s cool stuff, I am building a Colorado flag out of it (because I live there and Colorado is AWESOME), plus I have some ideas for furniture.
So I started off with 1/2 inch thick (maybe a little more) just to see what I could cut out on the GF. Settings were 100 speed, 95% power and .5 for height. Is it bad to have flames coming off of the wood when “cutting”? I stopped it about 30 seconds in, not wanting to damage a $6000 machine, and figured I’m only going to look at one side, so a quick trip to the table saw, rip the width down to 1/4 inch, and re-cut. This is what I got:
Looks awesome! Even the back side looks good:
So now I have to figure out stuff to make / cut with old fence boards!
