Don Noe’s beautiful cordwood shed in Oregon. This shed with the cord wood wall was built with 90 percent construction scrap. It was timber framed with timbers from large machine crates. The logs came from an arborist who was going to use them for firewood. Look at these magnificent door hinges and the red cedar doors. The bottle ends and cordwood work is also very artistic.Don states, “The doors (above) with the limb hinges are for a worm bin located on Portland Community College Campus.”
Below if another set of massive hinges, an beautifully decorated timber and excellent use of a deer skull and antler. The different dimensions of rock stem wall are pleasing.All I can say is nice work Don!
Check out the carving on the vertical timber! Don certainly knows how to reuse, recycle and make beautiful.
