I’ve been working on this cabinet for the last 2 wk’s trying 2 get it right. This is something new 4 me.It took me a while 2 figure out how 2 keep the Bark from curling up.This bark is White Oak,It doesn’t come off easy.I’ve been hording bark all Spring&Summer,I figured some day I would figure out what 2 do with.Popular bark peels off pretty easy.The Cabinet is 3 ft by 24 in, the door is 18 by 30 in,the top in 20 by 32 in,bark size is 16 by 30.It is heavy so I put it on casters.I’m goin 2 do a bark coffee table soon with a pour on bar top finish.THANKS 4 LOOKIN.

I think you are “barking” up the wrong tree.

It’s definitely different. I’m still trying to decide if I like it. Let’s see what others have to say. I’m not gonna start hoarding bark….yet.

I like it. It looks sturdy as can be and the wood looks great! Nice job.

Caught my eye as it is a different approach. It’s the Art in artisan? Don’t know if you know that it depends on when the log is cut as to whether the bark comes off or not winter cuts vs. summer cuts.

Good luck on your journey.
