Nice Trays BB. I agree, these are very sellable. The problem though, is that people aren’t willing to pay what your time is worth, yet they’ll overpay at some store for something with less care put in to it.

Lew … I’m not sure what species the pine is, probably yellow pine. The wood was originally used as structural supports in a covered bridge. When the bridge was replaced, the 2X12 pieces were re-used as flooring in the loft of a barn which is where I recovered them. It was very interesting to see the original peg holes in the wood, also to read the names and initials carved into many of the pieces.

Those are stunning! I’d be willing to bet that if you found pegs that it’s older than 75 years too. Looks like longleaf/ southern yellow/ heart pine to me. Did it smell like turpentine when you milled it?

round pegs? the exterior doors of my house (one became a table in last summers contest) was held together with round pegs and an amber-like glue. The house was built in 1880. I don’t know if they were original, – shaker 6 panel door, 3 glass panes over three wooden ones – but they might have been. beautiful quartersawn totally clear pine. haven’t seen anything like it for sale at the lumberyard or big box.

Stunning geometric designs and you have gotten the grain to really pop. The character of old barn wood is hard to beat.
Let me guess, you got and ‘A’ in geometry.
