At a recent Handmade Market held at Second Use Building Supply our friends Bill and Aggie Wilson of Reclaimed Creations had some unique and beautiful handcrafted wood products on display. Bill has been making “lightboxes” from teredo wood. This box is about 14″ tall and has a lightbulb inside.
I was especially intrigued by the round table that Bill and Aggie created. It is full of interesting holes and tunnels, is wondrously sturdy, and like all projects made with reclaimed wood it looks like it has a history.
Bill Wilson makes one of a kind benches. The one on the left is made with live edge teredo wood. The back of the bench on the right has a beautiful handcarved landscape of water, a tugboat towing a log raft, trees and mountains.
At Trinity River Marine we love and appreciate skilled woodworkers. These are the people who see the potential in the wood within minutes of setting eyes on it. They choose their pieces carefully and can’t wait to see their ideas become reality!
