This is a cashier counter that my daughter and I made for a store in Gatlinburg, TN that sells alot of the stuff my daughter makes. They are having their store remodeled with old barn wood walls, and wanted a custom barn wood cashier counter. After talking with the owners, I suggested they let us vary from what they originally said, and basically one of those “Trust Us” type things. To my surprise, they gave us total control over the whole thing. Knowing what they wanted, we made some improvements in the design, and added a under counter glass display area, with 2’ rope LED lighting, and switch and plug on the outside of the display area, under the counter, and full shelves on the front and side under the counter. The barn wood was taken off one of my barns. I figure a couple more barn wood projects, and I will have a new barn. LOL Taking the old wood off, and putting new wood back up. Anywho, the store owners were REALLY excited with the way it turned out, and I think this one turned out alright.

Definitely a winner on this one. Looks great. It will be the highlight of the store after they remodel. Good team work.

Looks right on for the remodeled decor, and an obviously satisfied customer judging by the smile on her face. Congratulations to you and your daughter on a job well done.

That came out real nice Hoss… the lady behind the counter sure looks like she like it a lot. It is also great that your daughter makes things that she can sell. Looks like she has the table saw and sled to good use.

Good job on the counter.

Good idea for “seasoning” boards for barn wood, whether it is intentional or not.

Very nice work. Do you know what the barn wood is? Also what did you do to it like planning or sanding to get the wood looking this what? What is the finish?
I see so many people selling and using reclaimed barn wood, I wonder if there are many barns left. I recently bought some old barn lumber that turned out to be Hemlock under many years of hard weathering up north.
