One of my latest projects. A pair of sliding barn doors made from reclaimed red and white oak. All of the wood came from an old fence that I took down several years ago that was going to be bulldozed and burned.

That’s a beautiful door. Great construction and the finish looks nice and rich.

What was your finish schedule? They have a nice rich tone. My BIL will be putting in a couple of these. I will be sharing this with him

Thanks! I left as much of the aged patina as I could and stained these with a Rustoleum brand stain, the color is Kona. It is one color I have found that I can get a nice darker color with on oak. They were sprayed with a satin lacquer.
