Wine bar I built from salvaged , circle sawn barn wood. Everything is salvaged on this project, the feet are door knobs from a building torn down a couple years back, the handles were from a display I found in the dump even the finishes were left over from other jobs. All joints are datoed and dowelled and other than nails holding the back on there is no other hardware used for joinery. The drawers are my first try at hand cut dovetail joints and I was pretty happy with them. Look close at the handles they look like branches and I thought they went well with the style.

That’s a sharp looking cabinet. It has a great aged look.

Looks good! Hard to believe everything came from recycled wood.

That’s a great looking wine bar! I like that you were able to use all salvaged wood and parts—really adds to the character of the piece!
