Ok, so more like cutting up a piece of a roof.
I needed some material for the panels of a couple reclaimed wood cabinet doors, and it's too stinkin' cold outside to go hunting for something super ideal, so I figured I'd try to make something happen with the corrugated metal I've been hanging onto for the past year. The metal came from the roof of an old barn, and I haven't done anything with it...until now.
Cutting the metal went well. Making it decently flat went well. Clear-coating it went well.
I wish I'd have oriented the corrugation vertically instead of horizontally, but at the time I was laying things out I was mostly concerned with cutting the metal (with a circular saw) and not losing any fingers or having shrapnel bury itself in my face.
I think when the doors are done they'll look pretty unique. I'm not sure it's the look I thought it would be, but sometimes when everything's complete and polished up a bit my opinion changes. Regardless, the old rusty barn roof has texture and patina for days.
