well, up for show are a set of barnwood vanities 2@72”(double sink) &1@ 54(single)mixed oak quite a bit quartersawn (very nice flake)red &white the tops were pretty strown with big ol nail holes and being a surface for H2O i decided to lay the epoxy to them so duck taping the bottom i filled the holes with a clear epoxy and then once cured knifed to flush and textured as normal the matt finish of the epoxy fininshed out nicely taking nothing from the look of the barnwood and adding a H2O frindly solid surface (not my origional ideal but well pleased with the outcome )
the drawers are all hand cut dovetails (and i might say the lie nielson dove tail saw is well worth the money )
bookmatched drawerbottoms from barnwood planed to 1/4” .(overkill to the ridiculous)the drawer fronts are specifically cool there was one board that was in the mix that at my best guess was aggressively topped prior to the harvesting ,resutingin in the most peculiar burlish grain full leanth on both edges of the board roughly 9” wide and say 80”long not enough to work in as a componet in the cabinets (untill i got to picking wood for the panels in the drawer fronts ) so be sure to peak at that ,”blumotion” drawer guides finshed them off
finished with 6 coats of waterlox medium sheen oil
no picks of them installed yet ..forgot the camera and the install was 200 miles from the shop one way ..
always forget somthing ,

I’ll bet the client is pleased. If not, I know where you can send them. Nice work. Truly a work of craftsmanship and consideration. Nicely done.

This is a great piece, I don’t usually go for the rustic look but this is a stunner, top notch work.

Nice Job, I really like the color its very rich, I love working in barn wood, I did a bar, and a desk in some white oak from a barn, they both came out really well. They were a lot of work cleaning the wood, but in the end they where worth it.
