The walnut used to be a floor joist in a barn circa 1840’s. A friend was able to salvage a bunch of it when his neighbor decided it was time for a new barn. I guess you can’t complain about getting 160 years use out a building. Unfortunately I could only manage to get a few chunks of it.
The movement and feet came from Klockit. The brass accent came from the local hardware store.
I used a walnut danish oil to get the color I wanted and followed that up with three coats of tung oil.
