Started with a walnut cabinet from the Rebuilding Exchange, then added various aged lumber that they locally accumulated- douglas fir floor joists, cedar fencing, walnut doors and panels, pine shelving, both natural and painted white. To preserve the color of the wood, the cabinets were coated with wax. dilettantestudios.org
