Well, I've come to the end of my pile of free old barn siding. As grateful as I was to my sister-in-law for finding the wood and to the guy who gave it to me I had still originally asked myself, "what in the world am I going to do with this pile of old barn siding?". I now ask myself, "what would I have done without that pile of old barn siding?!".
Here's the last creation I made with it. Its an entertainment center for a good friend who must also be a bit old fashioned: I don't see how she is going to shoe-horn a 48 inch plasma screen into this thing! (boots for scale):
Thanks to Lori, the free wood guy, the table saw fairy and rustic creation fans!!
