Here are a few images of some cabinets I made for a project in the Yellowstone Club. They are made from Pier Plank from the Great Salt Lake. They were part of the clients bar. I will try to post photos of the whole project soon.

That’s a real interesting look. I’ll bet it was a challenge to work with those old planks.

That’s cool, is that the natural color (weathered, I mean), or did it darken when you applied a clear coat of some type? Tell us about the round shapes in the door panels, are they from resting on posts or something? Really neat, right on.

That is the natural color there was no finish, and for the shapes they are from where the piles met the decking at least thats what I think they are called. We called the shapes medallions and every door panel had to have one, as well as the finished end panels.
