Very cool, where'd you get the wood? At a place that sells reclaimed materials or straight from the barn itself?

Nice, are you keeping it raw or stain/varnishing it?

I found a company not too far from me that collects the wood, from barns so that is much easier for me.

That's awesome. There's a similar place here in Chicago that I've been meaning to check out. I should get over there soon:

This is always how I feel after finishing a woodworking project too. It's good though, if there's something you want to do differently next time you know you're learning something! Just wanted to say really nice job on your mirror, I also really like how your door came out too. Keep it up!
