Wow! Started at the end of summer…which summer? That would have taken me about 27 yrs to do. Very nice work.

Excellent!! Every time I see one of these completed I swear I’m going to make one some day. I should actually just do it. I like the top of the cabinet and the antler usage.

Your avatar is aptly named. This is a project that goes far beyond just having woodworking skills. Something like this takes a true handyman.

Thanks for sharing.
