I had some old Pine boards that were used as bookshelves by the previous owner,the reason I bought them was the Amber color finish on them, so I decided to use some of the boards to build a primitive style cupboard.

This was my very first attempt at using Aniline dye, chose Russet Amber aniline so it would be almost like the original finish which I really liked.
For the doors I used Pine Wainscoting bought from home depot,in Rail $stile frames.
Thank you for looking.

That is a great looking cupboard. Nice to see re-used material in some of it.
