Antique Oak

Just a quick gloat post... 
A member of my girlfriends family discovered these pieces of very old Oak while clearing out his garden shed and kindly 'donated' them to me. Apparently, it was an antique chest of drawers that originated from the very house I now live in. 

While most of the pieces are a bit scarred, cracked and holed, with some careful trimming and planing and general TLC, I'm sure I can get some good use out of them. It's not every day I get work with woods other than Pine and this Oak already has built in 'character'.

Old is gold as it is an old saying. This old traditional oak seem so unique and precious. Antique items are very precious, one should always save it because such things aren’t made now a days and never get old.
