3 ROOSTERS, A TIGER, AND AN EGG - vintage grain cabinet





I have fallen in love with another finished project. It is a lovely kitchen storage piece built for a small space.






The base cabinet I used was made of Tiger Oak.
I'm sure many of you have read an online furniture 
ad mentioning Quarter Sawn or Tiger Oak,
this is what it looks like.


For those wondering exactly what that means or how it's done: 

The log is first cut longitudinally into wedge-shaped quarters. Then the quarters are cut along each plane of the wedge, with the cuts running radially toward the center of the log. The cuts are made alternately on each face of the wedge, producing narrower and narrower boards as the wood is cut away. Because the grain of quarter-sawn wood is straighter than that of flat-sawn lumber, the quarter-sawn wood is significantly more stable.


The cabinet was going to the landfill when I got my hands on
 it. No joke it was ready to be loaded on the truck. It has a
 new life now and in the future the lovely wood has
 been preserved if someone wants to uncover it one day.



This french grain graphic I used, can be found at the Graphics Fairy.


The top portion I fought at a yard sale a while back and it's been waiting for the right companion.

I painted the FARMERS' MARKET sign myself.
