The barnwood came from four doors that were on an old shop building on a farm that my parents bought. They ended up making the building into a cabin so I took the wood from the doors with plans of making something out of them.
The wood was tounge and groove pine and had weathered to about 1/2” thick. I dont know how old the doors were but there was a calender from 1953 hanging on the wall of the building.
My wife had pictures of our daugher taken and there was a wooden fence in the background of one of the pictures. My wife got an 11”x14” print of the picture and started looking for frames. When I saw the fence in the background I decided to try to make a frame. This is the first project that I have completed with the barnwood and the first picture frame I have made. As you can see from the second picture I have plenty of wood left for more frames.
