The hundreds... uh, thousands... of 100+ year old cedar shingles that were removed from our roof are being moved and stored in one of our barns for later projects. Some are whole and some split during removal. I grabbed a big handful of the split ones and turned them into garden stakes by attaching recycled aluminum plates on them that I hand stamped.
I love these not only because they are made completely of recycled materials, but also because they are cedar and won't rot. Shingles are also tapered at one end, making them incredibly easy to pound into the ground.
