Far from fine furniture i had to forget a lot of what i have learned in the last four years to get the rustic style my lead designer (my wife) was looking for. As you can see in the second pic we are replacing the dark stained lovered doors. We chose a rustic, board and batten style door made from pine. I used hand planes and scrapers leaving “plane trails” and chatter marks as character. Finish was one coat of 2lbs amber shellac, one coat medium brown dye stain, 2 coats wipe on poly. Dummy strap hinges from Acorn finish off the rustic style. Thanks for checkin it out.

They are a huge huge upgrade. I like to see woodworking projects that double as home improvement projects. Well done.

Hog – which opening? The one to the right is a 6 panel heading to the basement. Its destined for 3 coats of white paint As soon as i dont hate painting again that is.

Shane – Stick around and ya might see countertops soon Shane. Im debating if I’m feeling ambitious enough.

Ben, Dave, Don – thanks yous guys.
