If all your friends were doing rustic projects, does that mean you would too? I guess so!
When I bought my house, there was a curious box in the carport with a few shelves. I built a rustic door for said box, trying to match the log construction of my shop. I took a crummy piece of Lowe’s pine, jointed the edges, and glued it up. I took deep passes with a Stanley No. 5 to give it some character. Passed it over the router. I hit it with a coat of 1 lb. shellac followed by horrible tinted polyurethane. Black wax. A little carving for the better half. The handle is from a tree on my property, cut on my massive new bandsaw (first cut, smiles) and pegged in with two walnut dowels. Opening the door shows the lazy old pine. This is a warmup for some rustic stuff I’m planning. Thanks for looking!
