    Finally Finished

    Two mumble mumbles ago my wife comes to me and asked for medicine cabinets. With working etc it has been a long haul. That etc. includes getting it 90 % done and realizing a mistake and STARTING OVER.

    They had to look EXACTLY!!! like a picture she had found in a magazine EXCEPT . . . . . The magazine was two doors - nope one door but look like two, Magazine was two drawers on the bottom - nope one drawer but look like two. This is alder with stain and poly. Oh yes the stain was a little blotchy even though I had sealed with shellac. I wasn't happy but wife loved it - looked rustic. Whew! And they had to be mirror images of each other.

    Nice color, nice choice of handles, good fit for the space.

    That design would be interesting scaled up into an open front gun cabnet.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    Very well done Hubert. I hope you got more than a mumble when you finished.

    Good for her, even if it was more difficult for you.

    The cabinets are great---and there is NOT a single mumble in that statement.

    Why didn't she want the single door to be two doors?

    Enjoy,
