Designed and built this cabinet for a lawyer customer. He needed very specific sizes for each drawer and the open shelving for his files. The total length is close to 8’ and about 36” tall. A majority of the project was built with genuine reclaimed barn wood. There was Oak plywood used for the interior portions. The top is solid 2” thick pine barn wood. The entire piece was sealed with a danish oil and a top coat of polyurethane.

Nice looking cabinet. I like how the dark shelves on the side sections contrast with the light dividers of the middle section. It breaks up the flow nicely.

that’s a beauty. Love the rustic but useful look. Makes me think old drug/hardware store.
