My friend Ryan recently bought a camp right next door to the camp we have been going to for years. Coincidentally, his grandfather built both of them, which is why he got first bid when it went up for sale. Anyhow, the camp was built in the 70s, and has the interior to prove it. We have done a lot of work inside already… ripping down wallpaper, tearing off old wainscoting, drywall, paint, redoing the floor, etc. and now we are at the point of building new furniture.
I’m sure you can attest to this- its really hard to buy something that you know you can build. I know Ryan wants to keep a rustic looking theme, and after much looking on this website, I want to build a dining room table from reclaimed barn wood, then match a seating bench to the table. This will be a first for me because I have never used barn wood before, and don’t even know where to start looking. I posted a question on the forum and have gotten some pretty good leads. I will follow up with these and see if I can’t get any stock to start working on a design.
Wish me luck!
