This past fall my wife and I was trekking though some antique stores in Waynesville, Ohio and we came across a nice little project that my wife seemed to like. We are both interested in Primitive style items and this looked to be something that would fit right in.
I was allowed to take a little snap shot of this item and went from there. Some barn siding material I have stacked behind my shop should fit the bill, so that’s what I used. One major thing I did different then what the reference house showed was how the front rear and ends went together. Instead of butting together I overlapped like a log cabin. By using the barn siding, this seemed to be better.
One other feature I did was hand carve the front door. Not should is a light that attaches to the back. This helps light up the inside.

Very cool. I’ve been to Waynesville many times. We would visit the antique stores all around that area, and we used to go to the ren fayre near there. That’s always a gr8 time. Also, we would go on the same weekend as the sauerkraut festival was going on. Nothing better than the sauerkraut pie that the locals make. Yum Yum!!

Tom, this is great fun and has a nice look. Good work. I have not been to Waynsville, but ironically I have been to antique shops in your home town of Madison. The Woodworking Show comes to Indy this next weekend.
