One way to find wood to reclaim is to place an ad in your local classified section. Or take a drive to look for old wooden barns or other wood structures that look like they are not being used. Property owners may not have the time or money to have these buildings torn down. This is where you come in. See if you can work out an agreement to take the building down for no cost in exchange for being able to keep all of the wood. Many property owners will jump at a deal like this. Be sure to draw up a contract and have the owner sign it.

On demolition day, gather some friends to help. This is going to be a big job. You will also need to rent a dumpster for any pieces and materials that you do not want. It is your responsibility to remove everything and to clean up the area. You cannot just take what you want. When you begin taking down the structure work from the top down. When you are taking down a building by hand, you work opposite the way it was put up. This means you begin taking down the structure from the top and work your way down.

When you get the wood back home, you will have a lot more work to do in order to get it ready for your creation. The first step is to go over each piece to remove any nails or screws. Take off the hardware as well. Once you have removed these items you can begin sanding. After sanding wash the wood that you will be using. A bristle brush and some water will remove any insects that might be hiding in the wood. After your wood is cleaned, and sanded, you are ready to get to the fun part, creating your beautiful headboard.
