Shelf from Reclaimed Pine Boards

I was sorting through a bunch of stuff in my dad’s shop last month and I came across a pile of old pine boards that we had salvaged from a nineteenth century wardrobe.  They are beautiful boards, with a very special character and hue.  I just have to make some useful things and get them back out into the world.  The first of these is a simple hanging shelf with a single wide drawer.  It is a one off piece, featuring hand cut dovetail and mortise and tenon joinery.  The finish is hand rubbed linseed oil and butchers wax.  This is a well constructed, all new piece made from beautiful old wood.  It is fashioned with a French cleat for solid, sturdy mounting.  Approximate dimensions: 26 1/4″ wide, 24 1/2″ tall, 7 1/4″ deep.  This shelf is available for $425 plus Maine state sales tax (5.5%) and any shipping costs.

I have enough of this wood left to make a few more pieces of this size range, or perhaps one coffee table, and will entertain your commission.
