We salvage timber from the bottom of Georgian Bay; our fishing lodge/resort is located at the site of what was Canada’s second-largest sawmill. The mill closed in 1926 and there is a substantial inventory of sunken wood at our doorstep.
This armoire was one of the first pieces we built with salvaged material. It’s mostly white pine.
The only metal in this piece is the hinges and the handles. Everything else is m&t or biscuited. All of the raised panels (28 of ‘em) and the shiplap back are full-floating.
I will post some more projects and some more detail about the material when I have some time to spare.
