I thought this project fitting for the “One Man’s Junk” contest. The barns are gone now, but my niece will always have a piece of her heritage…
This is a real labor of love. I built this for my niece (a horse nut). The wood comes from barns on our family farm. Her great grandpa built the barns from lumber milled on the property. One barn had handmade nails. Just cause of the way things go, the place is for sale and she will lose that piece of her heritage, so I thought I’d capture a little of it for her! I sealed up pictures of the barn and some of the nails to go with the box.
The wood is Doug-fir and cedar barn wood. The design is a knockoff from Woodsmith, finished with Poly Arm-R-seal.
