Have been kicking this post and beam and end grain veneer idea around for a while .
Saturday I was cutting up this 3×8 Douglas fir to see if I could salvage some of it between the cracks .
Here is the resulting post and beam box with end grain oak veneer stained with red wine ,worked better than anything else I tried to get the colour I was looking for .
Finish is poly over red wine on the panels and flat black on every thing else .
Bit of a rustic box and will be used as a potpourri box since the panels will let air flow and the top is slightly elevated and located on four posts .

That is a really neat looking box. The design is quite unique and depending on h ow I look at it i see the rustic look, but I also get an arts and crafts vibe and an oriental feel from it. Another great project.

Kiefer…..I like this one! It has great presence and a solid feel. The colors and the structure have a distinctly Japanese or Asian flavor for me…..I guess the beam ends. Great craftsmanship.

Really interesting look kiefer.
It will be interesting to see how the red wine dye holds up.
Maybe you will have to experiment with different varietals and regions to determine the best vintages for dying wood. Of course you know that I’d be rooting for Chianti Classico. :-)

I dig the frame style. This would look great in a large piece.
