This piece was made from reclaimed shutter doors as the site panels and wide old growth hemlock boards as the shelves. I made the dental molding with a router and a homemade jig. This is a heavy piece, not looking forward to ever moving it. The finish is regular discounted dented paint from lowes and bubbled by burning it with a large propane torch attached to a 20b gas grill tank. This is a satisfying method to reproduce the old look antique finish naturally acquired through years of age and wear in the matter of seconds. The smell can be overwhelming at times from the paint instantly drying. Eventually you forget your name and what it is that you are even doing! This piece was finished outdoors for obvious torching reasons, ha. I work a lot at nighttime and I realized after finishing one night that the piece was on fire. opps, it adds to the character and charm. The red corner cupboard was finish the same way. That was new wood (pine) from lowes.
