This is a labor of love right now. I asked my chiropractor if he knew of any places to get some old barn wood. He knows everybody. He called me two weeks later and said there was a house being torn down about an hour away that was built in the 1920’s.

I drove straight there and was able to pull just a few of the floor joist’s before the demolition crew had finished off the house.

I was able to get six 2 x 12 boards about 8 feet long. I took them to a friend of a friend to get them planed down to size. I then went about deciding which pieces I was going to use and in what order. I trimmed them all to match and started the process of making a desktop for my office. Let me tell you, there is nothing like 90 year old lumber people. Nothing!
