ReUse Action’s wood being used!

Check it out!  I took some wood from ReUse Action’s indoor lumber yard, processed it at the Rusted Grain woodshop, and am making a cabinet for a client.  The wood comes from the demolition project ReUse Action’s Green Demo Team conducted in South Buffalo in September.   Flush doors with tongue and groove paneling and a very simple face frame and body structure. They will be using their new cabinet in their dining room to put extra plates and table settings when not in use. Check out the progress so far…panels glued, table top made, face frame complete…it just needs to be put all together and finished!

If you have a cabinet project in mind, please contact Megan at 716.220.8842 or email info {at} rustedgrain(.)com.

If you want to buy salvaged lumber from ReUse Action’s indoor lumberyard, contact Michael at michael {at} reuseaction(.)com or call 716.949.0900.

We’ll be selling these at $50 a running foot. We have eight and ten foot sections – some of these combine to make longer pieces.

Mary is the ReUse Explorer of the Month! For her sharp eyes and quick response, she gets our gratitude and a $25 gift certificate from one of our favorite restaurants, Merge.

Transforming Old to New

Update: Here are the doors, installed.

Doors Installeed
Doors Installeed



We made these new doors from old materials. The pine tongue and groove was harvested from a barn in Lockport, New York this Fall, milled and reconstructed at the Rusted Grain woodshop into this pair of doors we just installed on a garage on Trinity Place in Buffalo.

ReUse Action can manufacture a variety of projects from reclaimed materials.  These doors look great on the garage, but also would accent a room in  a loft apartment or household when installed as a sliding door (surface mounted).  You’d have a attention grabber that would accent a room when it’s both opened and closed.

Costs vary depending on size and style, interior or exterior applications, and level of finish.
