Over in the Off Topic forum I started a thread about a project I was getting ready to start. I've got a customer who has a 100+ year old armoire that has had numerous repairs and in pieces. She wants to use it for a display piece in their store. I went over yesterday and looked at it. It was in about 15 pieces but I was able to figure out what went where. I picked it up today and got started.
Here's what I started with at about 3:30 this afternoon.
As I got into it, this is the kind of damage I was dealing with. This is the under side of the base.
And this is where I was at by about 7:00 this evening. (not too bad for 3-1/2 hours work)
The right side door needs minor repair. The left side door is wasted. I'm pretty much going to have to rebuild it, the pieces are all there but it needs serious help. (you can see it on the right side of the first pic) Once I've got the doors repaired it will be time for assembly. Then build some shelves and install them and it's ready to go. I'm planning on making it so that it can be disassembled and moved in pieces instead of one big unit. I can make it so that it will break down into 7 pieces and it will be much easier to deal with.
