    The Rebirth of a Hoosier Cabinet, DONE, final pic

    well i havnt just been reading and sorting out the bad words been making some saw dust of my own. i have a brother that is very dear to me and has done alot for me and my family over the years, and he has a wife that is no.1 in my book and i call her my sister, the one i never had. there was only the two of us boys..and yup we were boys.. any way to get on with this, he mentioned one day that his wife had been looking at one of those hoosier things. well i instantly said for him to stop looking, he found one.. he looked at me, and we both new what was to happen next so this is the beginning to a build that is almost completed now, its in the finish room as i write..this was built using some plans that a old member here that no longer belongs, but might be reading still gave to me. well i hadnt used plans to make something in some time, generally do my own plans and i know where and what i am up to.. well i was mislead a couple of times on this one because of over thinking and or lack of instruction in the plans..but we muddled threw and got around the obstacles that were presented.. so i contribute the begining of this to Don Taylor, and the help of this forum in the questions answered as i was involved in this build.. i thank you all..so here is the first batch of pics and i will be adding more as i get some free time to do so.. any questions will be answered as to how or why this or that is or was done that way..we needed more flat work anyway in here the spinners were making me dizzy

    Well Larry, I knew that you were working in the shade,(as I am BTW) and that you were going to startle us with a magnificent piece of work, it looks as if you've been taking photography lessons as well.

    That looks great! and the joinery is fantastic. I want to see them all. What you have done levels up with the spinny guys so do not worry on that side
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Hey Glenn, what sort of wood dust have you been breathing lately?, it has affected your looks on your avatar.
    Best regards,
