A draw knife was used to make each board look hand cut.

This beam was one of the few things purchased, it was aged and stained.

Finished Man Cave! Took about 6 weeks, with about half that time spent scavenging materials. The construction cost me $107 in materials. Everything else was free.



What an awesome way to work with minimal materials and funds.  If only I had the time to do this now.  Thanks to Redditt user, kelhans, originally posted this masterpiece.
