this cabinet was made from hurricane downed pine trees from east texas. the top is red oak. i used three colors of milk paint to create a worn finish. overall i like the result. not shown is a bright orange intieror, a subtle surprise.

Very very nice project. I was wondering what it was finished with- Milk paint??
I thought it might be Texas ebony.
Please add a picture of the interior!

you would be hard up to find that much texas ebony and if you did the cost would probably make you gag. milk paint is what was popular before all the new synthetics i like the texture of it you can find it online or woodcraft/rockler and such. i started with a tan color covering all wear spots or corners, edges, and such. then after dried a coat of red and then after dried a solid coat of black. once all has cured a day or two go over anything that shows like corners edges and profile with 220 sandpaper by hand and bring out the bottom colors. be sure not to sand through when desired wear is achieved add a clear seal coat to even out or a few coats of wax if it wont be subject to water heat and such. the top was a salad bowl finish.
