I have been making barnboard furniture for past few months.
As some of you know I was given a barn last spring, spent a lot of days salvaging the lumber.
As I build items, people online will email me and say” Try one of these”
This item is one of those !!!
It is 16” wide by 20” h x 3” d. Used to store Essential oils or lipsticks or whatever little items people have.
The back is made by ripping a 1×8 lap joint cedar plank in half.
First I cut it into 3” strips, then I use my table saw and cut them thinner. After pulling all the nails (I think) I still cut through a lot of broken ones. Thin shingle nails half rusted, really dont do a lot of damage to blade, other than make it dull quicker. Since I sharpen my own saw blades Im not all that concerned !
The door is lap jointed at corners , I cut a 1/2” x 3/8”D slot on inside of door. The mesh is fastened with thin lumber strips from inside.
Lots of knot hole in lumber, lots of nail holes, PEOPLE LOVE it this way.
I brush on vinegar-steel wool solution to cover any fresh saw cuts, then let it dry.
Getting ready for craft show at end of April.
Table rental is $200
I want enough items on hand to sell.
It is being held in cottage country so I am thinking lots of outdoor patio items. Planters, tables, etc.
