This is another barnwood project,the lady that purchased the wine hutch wanted some place to hide the sneakers instead of tripping over them.I have lots more of that wood so i guess I will do some more rustic stuff

That is a nice build. There is a way to “age ” those cut edges to match the weathered wood but I just can’t remember where I saw it. Maybe someone else will chime in that remembers.

I was going to consider taking some dark grey stain and hit it but the lady that bought it is satisfied so that’s all that counts

Whoa! THat’s like a bird penthouse. Very cool!

And the chest is great – I’ll bet the wood is very stable.
