Made from reclaimed lumber from a house built during the 1800’s. Made from longleaf yellow pine, mostly the interior walls, and the wood floors from the home. The picture was in the taken in a field, then I merged the background with another picture I took of a hail storm. Enjoy!

Hey Shad
This is one impressive piece with nice details. I also like the merging of photos very dramatic.
Maybe you could give us a little tutorial on how to merge photos .Welcome to LJs

Hey thanks for the comments. Working with this old wood is challenging, though rewarding. Photography is my other passion, so I try to incorporate both.

That’s beautiful! I like that you didn’t try to hide the old nail holes or plane out the saw marks, at least that’s what I think I see. This is one of those projects I really wish I could see up close in person.

Great looking piece of furniture. I really like the way the doors inset in the top molding. Great detail. The Photo really sets it off. I’m like the rest, tell us how you did the photo to. Thanks for sharing and welcome to LJ’s.

Looks like you merged a little green and green into the construction, thats the first thing that hit me were the cloud lifts over the doors. Beautifully constructed and you definately made it your own. Very nice,

Hey everyone, thanks for the awesome comments! The photo merge is really pretty simple. I did it using photoshop. The original background, I had to select using the wand tool. Then I just cut it from the picture. I then added the storm picture in it place. Of course I had to add some shadows and highlights here and there to make the overall picture believable. If you are really interested, visit youtube. Type in “how to remove and replace background using photoshop”. There are tons of tutorial videos.

A fantastic looking piece of furniture. The woods are great and the construction looks wonderful.

The first picture brings out all kinds of color to the piece.

Nice job.
