I’ve built several pieces out of barn lumber. One was a sideboard table abt 5’long 12”wide used 10” wide boards for legs. A couple of gussets to brace it. No finnish ect. The first person to look at it bought it. Seems like the more rustic and simple some pieces are the better. Also try planeing the weathered side leaveing the deepest grain. You’ll know when to stop. Plane the back side for thickness. Gives it a whole new look.
