Intrepid salvage spotter Mary Fisher, of Environmental Education Associates, gave us the lead on these fine oak pews from an Austin Street church:
Curved Oak Pews

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.
Update: Here are the doors, installed.
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 and Rusted Grain 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 hous hold 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.
Various old rolling doors from an 1880s barn in Lockport, New York. These are pine, tongue and groove. Sizes (width x height, within 1/2 inch): 54×81, 38×90, 33×86, 36×91, 39×83, 32×50 (2). Most have rollers and are meant to be installed with a wooden site-built rail (which we can build for you); one is for a metal rail, included.
The old look, natural wear and tear and authentic hardware can’t be duplicated with modern materials.
Prices: $250 to $400 each; two smallest doors $50 each.
