Even when you are rebuilding,
when you are using vintage materials it is nice to stay as authentic as possible.

That's why I go through the trouble of pulling nails out of old wood... is it tedious? Yep. But when I have a finished rebuilt piece, the authenticity of the vintage look will be there. To me, this is the difference between arts and crafts and artistry and craftsmanship. It's all in the details.
Excuse me while I go pull out some more nails for my project!
