Custom Pine Barn Board Panel Kitchen

I was commissioned by the owners of a horse ranch to build face frame, doors and drawers for their kitchen. The cabinets and counters were already installed. The customers had 100 year old pine barn boards that they wanted me to use for the panels in the doors and drawers. I made the face frame, door and drawer panels out of pine, stained puritain pine. I left the barn board panels the natural beautiful texture (nature’s sandblasting from 100 years of wind blown sand), just cleaned them up with a nylon drill brush. I lacquered it all, and the barn board’s rich patina jumped out. It is a beautiful contrast. The handles are actual pony horse shoes.
