I know how much everyone here likes reclaimed stuff, #sarcasm
This is an old one but I thought I’d share.

i love reclaimed wood and this is a beauty.the patina of that wood is just something you cant recreate,all though many try.probably why it’s so damn expensive.nice work drew.

I like the looks and don’t have a problem with it. In fact I would like to have that look around my house. Mel

I like that no trees were injured in the making of this post. Beside that embracing those saw marks gives that chest a kick ass look.

Authentic reclaimed projects like yours are one of a kind and stunning. I can’t imagine anyone having an issue with that. It has history written all over it.

Very attractive, conversational piece.
Well done.

I like it. The trim on the drawers, is that just applied to the face, or is it more structural?
