“Boomer” and Mary Kay needed an old cabinet they had from way-back fixed up. Old oak with a lot of loose and stained shelves like it was a garage storage unit. Bottom line, needed restored. Tightened up the joints and added new trim to the bottom…planed the warped solid oak shelves. Fixed the shelf supports and evened out the finish and covered with semi lacquer.

Nice rehab. Looks great.
Did I hear you say….. steal the solid oak shelves and replace them with plywood shelves faced in solid oak? That actually would be a win-win as plywood is better for shelves as the solid oak is sure to sag or warp. Then you score some extra solid oak for a more appropriate use.
