E.B. Tool Company Gives Insight Into the Best Places to Find Reclaimed Wood
Gays Mills, WI, January 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Reclaimed wood is a hot commodity these days among contractors, designers, and the household handyman. That increased demand has driven the price right up to the point where the recycled wood is an expensive fashion statement that few DIY handymen can afford. E.B. Tool Company, known for the revolutionary KwickGripper carpentry tool, offers a few ways for the family handy man or woman to locate salvaged wood for upcoming woodworking projects.
First, it may be cheaper—or even free—to pick up old wood and clean it rather than to obtain reclaimed wood that is ready to use. A key tool box essential for this kind of clean up is the KwickGripper. Vital to pulling out old nails and rusty or stripped screws with minimal material damage and user effort, the KwickGripper is one of the best tools for DIYers to have in their tool chests.
Next, it is time to find the wood itself. Visiting shipping yards, boats yards, and salvage yards may yield sources of wood to clean up and to reclaim. From shipping crates and pallets to broken down fishing boats, a DIY handyman never knows what might be found. It is important, however, to make sure the wood has not been chemically treated with toxic materials.
E.B. Tool Company offers these and many more handyman tips on its website and blog for finding reclaimed wood and creating masterpieces. Visit www.ebtoolcompany.com to learn more. Be sure to also check out E.B. Tool Company’s boards on Pinterest for additional woodworking ideas.
