Landscaping Hammered pallet workbench
Vacation in Philly

Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch. This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits...Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him.

Genesis 6:14-15,22
English Standard Version (ESV)

Welcome

Welcome to The Slanted Shed where our purpose is the REpurpose. We will repurpose just about anything to use in our products from pallets and barn wood to lamps, furniture and old tools.

For many, the reclaimed wood/repurposing movement is the current fad or the “flavor of the week”. For us, it’s become a way of life and necessity. We’ve both grown up in middle class families where we often quite literally lived paycheck to paycheck. However, we don’t feel like this should prevent us from having nice things–it just means that we have to be a little more creative than most. Long before we even knew what HGTV was, we decorated and furnished homes using items purchased at thrift shops, goodwill, etc and refreshing them with a coat of paint or new fixtures.

A few years ago we took this to the next step when we obtained a generous supply of wood reclaimed from a 100+ year old barn. This is when we began making our own furnishings rather than repurposing someone else’s. Today, we now will create for others! All of our creations are born out of a special need of our own, or request for others. Therefore, our product list is constantly growing.

2018 is a year that we intend to refocus this site and breathe new life into it. In the last few years, this project has taken a back seat to other sometimes more important projects, but we intend to make this a more active site as those projects wind down. So, please bookmark us, come back often and even contact us for ideas or suggestions!
