Background image is a wall on a shed I built about 20 years ago out of 11/16 x 8 Clear Rustic Flush Face T&G
The fireplace mantel in the picture is reclaimed solid black walnut from a turn of the century Seattle Hotel. The material was 5/4 x 3. The 8″ T&G in the background is a clear Rustic V4E. This is over 15 years old! Still looks new! The 8 inch clear flush face on the time tunnel wall is on our shed. Doing fine for 20 years! On a south facing wall no less!
