Here’s a bench that I made out of an antique door. It was pretty easy since I made all the cuts on a table saw. I rubbed some mineral oil on it to give it a nice finish and hung some antique horse hames on the front for a holiday decoration.

Again a pretty unique piece.

Out of curiosity why did you use a mineral oil finish? This is somewhat unusual in that normally this is used for projects that come in contact with food.

The one thought that comes to mind, as your company’s name implies, is that you might be concerned about the voc content of other finishes.

Thanks for the post.

Nice bench – I really think that was creative use of some old doors.

Looks like a church pew. Glad to see the recycling.

Have your say...
