Scrap wood credenza

Scrap wood credenza

I built this credenza out of scrap wood from my dad's cabinet shop a few months ago. I got the idea for building all of this scrap-wood stuff from all of the off-fall material that we have accumulated at the shop. I've been saving every little piece of material that would have been thrown away. Basically, if i can put finish on it, I save it. This credenza has walnut, wenge, poplar, mahogany, shop plywood, and oak in it.

I drilled 3/4" holes into the sliding doors as pulls. I made these custom angled hairpin legs out of 1/2" steel rod and 1" flat bar. I did them the same way I made the potence lamp with a pipe and a wheel clamped to the bench.

You can see the scrap pile "wall" is out of control. This is only a portion of it too. The credenza has adjustable shelving inside each half of the cabinet.

You home! tear It’s beautiful, you guys have made it so cozy yet so modern. I love this Credenza- upcycled and the legs are beautiful! I’m torn between finding a vintage one and making my own for my “entryway”.

Hi. Is there anyway you could post or privately email me some instructions on how to make hairpin legs and what equipment tools are needed for it? I would really appreciate. Can’t find anything online.

Thank you!
