    Re- Bookcase/cabinet

    A couple of weeks ago I had posted a Bookcase/Cabinet that I made for a lady that lived in a condo on the second floor. There was som wonderment of will it fit or not into the elevater. Well part of it did,the other part didn't.
    This was a situation that I had not encountered before. Meaning I had to build the cabinet in two sections. But because of there Hight I could never see how thay fit together untell I installed them. I also had never been involved with a painted project before.

    The spray booth was set up in the garage and kept it heated to 70 degrees.

    It was a great relief when we lifted the upper cabinet onto the lower one and they fit just as they were supposed to
    Best part of the whole job was one very happy customer.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    I can only take credit for the wood work My grandson did the painting
    He is just 21 and does a great job. Makes my work look good.
