Made out of Pine. Used a 3 step process on the finish to hide the fact it was pine haha. Used water diluted paint for toning then stained with Cabot Dark Walnut and then polyed. The trim around the top was primed MDF so I had to do some crazy faux painting to try to get it to match the rest of the stained areas. Pretty happy with it.

Thank ya guys! I unfortunately work with a limited budget so most of my stuff is made out of pine. I have done a lot of work with hardwoods but my budget doesnt allow me to unless it is ordered. Haha long story short, I’ve had to experiment with alot of combinations of paint/stain to make it look pretty if its going to be stained

I agree with Dusty…damn fine piece of pine! Great job on the finish, too. I can majorly relate on the lack of funds. The thing is, you’ve proven here that with great craftsmanship and some creative thinking, pine can look good. To paraphrase Will Smith from the first MiB movie that applies to your work here: “You know the difference between my pine and other pine? I make pine look GOOD!”

Cody, I work with hardwoods for my rustic stuff, but have been building the hell out of pine lately becauseeeee.. wellllllllllllllll…. with a good primitive finish the ladies love it and because it is pine it can be priced reasonably and then those ladies BUY it. So my friend, there’s alot right with pine these days. You just have to master the art of primitive finish and prim design,, then you can pine away. :)
