We’re celebrating ten seasons of Robert, Mike and the crew at Black Dog Salvage by ranking the dawgs’ best projects from each season.
The Dawgs head to Blacksburg, Virginia, to salvage an 1800s barn with an internal log structure. This should be a textbook job, but with a hurricane on the horizon, the team is under a tighter deadline to make it out before the storm rolls in. Later, the team turns part of an airplane into a stunning desk.
Southern Dawgs head up north to deliver a large lamppost that will serve as the focal point of a new community space. Before taking on this project, however, Robert takes the team to the Bluefield House in West Virginia to rack up on the classic commodities needed to restock their warehouse.
The Dawgs take a stab at a refurbished storefront in historic downtown Lexington, Virginia. This second-generation salvage requires a lot of finesse, as the building is being renovated rather than destroyed. The team then turns the existing windowpanes into a room divider commissioned by the building's owner.
Mike and Robert take the Dawgs to salvage a church in Alexandria, VA, where they must save everything from contemporary pews to a commercial grade sink. However, the team is forced to get creative as they are met with heights, narrow hallways and perplexing waterlines.
The Dawgs tackle Ohio's cold and snowy winter to salvage an old Italiante house that's beaming with character. Back in the shop, things heat up as Tay comes up with a plan to use old pulleys as the legs for a unique table.
The Salvage Dawgs pick through a barn and take on a Queen Anne-style home in Barnesville, Ohio, looking for some bonus finds. Mike Whiteside meets with a return client who has an idea for a dining table set made from rusted canning baskets and live edge wood.
The team organizes a Dawg vs. Dawg build competition after Mike and Robert get a tip on an abandoned power plant from an old client in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The winner of the salvage contest will be a tough call as both teams' distinct pieces are deeply rooted in the plant's original aesthetic.
After a call from their old friend, Captain Tim, the crew travels to Norfolk, Virginia, to salvage a fireboat from Baltimore. When they return to the shop, Mike and Tay enlist the help of a local coppersmith to fashion unique foot baths for Hotel Roanoke.
The Dawgs head to Martinsville, VA, to salvage a house that was condemned after an electrical fire. Knowing they have a customer looking for a kitchen island, Mike and Robert take advantage of a granite counter in the burned-down home.
The Dawgs travel to Moneta, Virginia, to salvage a diner and drive-in that were destroyed by a fire. Their priorities include a kiosk booth and a mobile stage, but retrieving such large items will require some maneuvering. Back at the shop, Mike gets sentimental while building a bar for the Stone House using metal he's held onto for over a decade.
The Salvage Dawgs work on a church in Covington, Virginia, and find tambour doors, stairs and a jukebox. Mike and Tay build a locker bench, then the crew finds a propane spotlight.
The Dawgs tackle a ranch house in Alderson, WV. Key items salvaged include stained glass and corbels. In the shop, Mike reuses timber to build a beam table.
The Salvage Dawgs team takes on a huge high school in Trenton, NJ. Key items found include fireclay sinks and oak cabinets. Mike and Tay build an N-shaped desk in the shop.
