grainetier style unit

This is one of the first pieces of furniture I ever made.  In keeping with my preference of using reclaimed wood, this piece is made of parts from an old pine wardrobe, a pine desk, an old door and the panelling came from an old bathroom.

Originally I attempted to age the pine using a technique involving tea, vinegar and steel-wool… It turned the wood a dark blue!  After much more sanding I opted for a stain and over 8 coats of varnish to give it a nice finish.
