Cabinet Conversion (pc:Repurposing) #1: It's a start - maybe

Between honey-do’s, I am taking on a project that the client is actually willing to pay for my time and materials to convert an old cabinet into a wine/liquor cabinet that he hopes to sell on e-bay or somewhere, that is, if I can quote him a price that will leave him some room for profit.

Guarino Videos #1: Lady's Makeup Table

This will be a gift for my wife. Years ago I rescued some wood at an old mill dumpsite that was going to burn it all to make room for a housing development. The table is made in Honduras Mahogany was some of that lumber. The center drawer is made in rescued Cherry. A friend of mine was on a construction job where a cherry tree was being taken down. He saved it from the chipper & brought it to me. Dovetail You Tube Mark Dovetail
