we made some custom barn wood doors
in a cab shop
i used to work in

made frames of poplar
with M&T joints
then re-sawed the barn wood
and ran it on a sled through the planer
(no scuff marks on the barn side)
got twice as much yield
and did intarsias with the different
the wood is different colors and textures
depending on the ark of the sun
and rain/wind directions

some really nice designs come out of it
from all that
