Book cases.....with matching media center completed earlier

A few months ago we completed a media center with an old vent cover placed in a door. After many delays we have finished the matching bookcases that complete the set and fit on either side of the cabinet. The pieces are made with reclaimed wood from old barns in the north Georgia area. The bookcases are 6 feet tall with adjustable shelves. The bottom of each bookcase has a door that matches and ties into the media cabinet. With the pieces being made of reclaimed wood, wood movement was not a major concern so we went with as simple and raw a finish as possible with 2 coats of paste wax being applied to offer some protection.

Were the saw marks existing or did you re-saw them with a blade with a knocked tooth?

the saw marks were existing. We try and leave as much of the character on the wood as possible. Lets everyone know where the wood came from and that it has a rich past as a barn.
