The craft room I built for my wife. All cabinets built from scratch and painted with a glaze over paint. Lots and lots of drawers. This build was a process of about 3 months start to finish. I really enjoyed doing it and got to buy a lot of new cool tools and gadgets in the process. I cut everything with my INCRA TS/LS tablesaw system and I absolutely love it.

Holy Smokes…..JoAnne’s and Michael’s must be jealous. A complete and impressive job Wayne. I must make sure my wife doesn’t see this or I am doomed. The spare bedroom is in danger if she see’s your beautiful work.

Wow, what a great work area and it is so inviting. She is a luck lady to have a husband willing to build such an inspiring and practical craft room. What type of wood did you use? Well done!

Very nice Wayne! I’m sure she loves crafting now and can find everything in a matter of moments :) I better not let my SO see this – or she’ll want something similar :D

You just proved the saying, “Everything is bigger and better in Texas!”
You did it up well.
Nice work!
It’s great that you got new toys for your efforts.
