I built this cabinet from reclaimed, weathered wood.I used rustic mexican hinges and hardware and REALLY wish I could add that to my skills. Making hinges and hardware! It will make a great addition to the “rustic lifestyle” bathroom or kitchen. Towel bar below!

Nice job! I like it a lot. Using reclaimed lumber always gives a project that special look. Nice job on the long horn. Did you carve that or is it part of the hardware you mentioned?

No, I didn’t carve it….it’s cast iron…..gosh I wish I was also a blacksmith!

Nice job T. I’m glad to see you’re still spending time in the shop. Any plans to participate in a craft show this year?

Love your stuff. As for making your own hardware… How hard can it really be? Life is so much more fun when you assume everything is within reach. (A cheesy sentiment no doubt, but one that’s led me to being a home shop machinist, budding (yet poor) woodworker, bread baker and self-taught programmer.)

Thanks…..Jerry maybe next year on the craft show. I want to try and get a website going…..not enough time it seems. @ madwilliamflint…Thanks….I feel the same way about doing things (or learning) I guess. It really only takes the correct tools and equipment ….knowledge comes from just trial and error.
