Here is my first project that I made when I started woodworking last summer. It’s made of pine and painted with Federal Blue Milk Paint. I chose #2 pine and some of it had worm holes and other light issues that I think added to this project. It’s a replica of a 1760’s wall cabinet with blacksmith hammered butterfly hinges and an iron escutcheon plate with half mortise lock. I attemped to make it look old by antiquing it and distressing it. It found a place in my livingroom next to the fireplace.

This is awesome. I love the color, the antiqued look, and the construction. That’s a nice first build, too. Get it!

Slick reproduction of a colonial style cabinet. The milk paint adds a nice appearance, very authentic.

Very nice. My wife would love it. She’s totally absorbed by primitive furnishings. I relly like the federal blue color.
