Killed bug pine is from the same tree as bug killed pine but one major difference, when I see a pine tree on my place with tell tale pitch nobs that the pine beetle is trying to find a home. I cut it down, saw the tree into lumber and incinerate the beetles with out mercy. They are not going to find a home on my place.
This cabinet was made to replace an ugly disorganized mess of few open shelves in the entry porch. The sides are pine and the front salvaged hemlock from a local mill. So the only amount I had to give up from my piggy bank was $20. for hinges and screws. Oh yes the shelves where salvaged from the high school where I worked. When they where building the new library they forgot to send the posts that the shelves attach to. So they said scrap them and we will send you a new complete order. I brought boxes of them home and gave allot away. that was years ago. been saving some for a rainy day.
I am hoping these pictures will post in the proper orientation. I took them vertically, LJs will post them laying down. Well Mark Wilson to the rescue again. He said to orientate them in the computer and then resize and crop in a picture manipulation program. He uses Gimp but I couldn’t figure out how so used Paint progam and figured it out. The second picture was taken horizontally and resized and cropped. The rest where taken vertically and just resized.
I have seen number of photo’s laying down, so hopes this may help someone.
I am hoping this will work, pictures look right way but have not pushed the post button.
Thanks for looking, and comments appreciated. Have a great day in the wood shop.

It worked, I think the first photo is the best. taken vertically then just resized, no cropping needed.

Good job, Brian. And, you’re welcome.
Paint? People still use that?

I like how great this turned out. Nothing like a great big cabinet. Thanks!

For reference, there is this process to rotate photos as well.

Nice cabinet. Wish it was in my shop.

Great Job on the cabinet, I need about 6 of those.
Thanks for sharing,

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
