At one point in another forum post here on LJs, I offered a tool cabinet would be worked using the raw materials salvaged from this old Hoosier cabinet topper.
Including the beat up piece of tambour door.
Some fine grit ROS work on the tambouR got it to look presentable; here it is sitting on top of the now-disassembled topper.
Not sure where this is headed, evidenced by the foot-dragging on the project so far. But, I did build a headboard in the meantime, so it’s not all been idle days on the shop… I’ve also gued up the split pieces of the upper so the raw material is ready to work. Anyway, I’m starting a blog series to keep track of progress should any LJs want to follow along. Thanks for looking, stay tuned as I try to figure this out.
