Welll this started when I wanted a metal gas pump to put in my garage to set next to my harley’s. So we went out looking for sometihing to restore. The prices were crazy for anything that I would want to even start working on. So then my wife (she is such an instigator) wanted a curio cabinet and decided I should just make her one that looked like a gas pump. We found the globe and a swap meet great price and the brass nozzle as well. The cabinet is made of peruvian walnut with satinwood and chakte cok stipping. The chakte has faed over the eyars but the satin wood still shows off pretty well. I ran rope lighting on the instide to show off our minitures motocycle collection and my wifes thunderbird model car. I obviously did not get to put it by the Harley’s in the garage and it wont pump not one drop of gas. We had my granddauther liiving with us the doors are not on hinges they clamp in with snap in clamps.
