    Glenn the Good Samaritin

    Glenn came down Friday, late afternoon and is still here into Sunday.

    We have been working on drawer cabinets to fit under my lathe. Actually, I shouldn't indicate that "We" were working on the cabinets. As a father I said, "Do this. Do that. Why didn't you do it that way? Hey, find the screw yourself, I didn't drop it. That's upside down." and other helpful things while he did all of the work. In fact I worked him so hard he was sweating and wishing that I had an air conditioned garage.

    We had a great time as usual (me watching, him working) with a lot of laughs.

    Pics show cabinets almost finished (Saturday).

    Enjoy,

    I see you spared no expense on the drawer pulls.

    Seriously, the lathe cabinet is looking good.

    I'd love to have a good samaritan like Glenn visit my shop.

    Nice work in a short amount of time.

    Looks great!

    Are you going to put fronts on the drawers? Just asking as I think it would help keep the stuff out of the drawers that come of that lathe.

    BTW, that lathe station is WAY TOO clean

    Nice job by the good samaritan! I'm sure I could fill those with junk in no time at all. What's the board across the top? Is it part of a safety stop?

    Nice storage space. I would love to have that much. Looks great and sure will be handy to have.
