Amish barn wood

May 24, 2009 | Filed in:

I’m currently working on some tables for an office in downtown Brooklyn.  I’m using old Amish barn wood (pine).  I love working with the old worn and warm wood.  Go to “artwork- Furniture” to see photos.   I like working with materials that have a long history already.  I swear I can feel the energy in my hands when I work with the barn wood.  Design wise I am combining some Shaker elements and arts and crafts style, and my own personal preferences.  I also am using old wood joinery techniques which add to the evidence of hand feel of the old barn wood.
