The first photos are of a pine pantry cabinets with decorative on lays. Finish is wipe on poly- not exectly a good application- I have got to get a HVLP system!. The others are an African Mahogany cabinets inside a display cases. Display cases and basement all have recessed dimmable lighting. A Fire gutted the basement and #$@!& insurance company wouldn’t fix it – so I did!. Entire walls and ceiling had to be reframed and rebuilt. Mahogany Cabinets with gloss lacquer finish have two full extension shelves in each except for far right. These cabinet dimensions including the display cases were all based on size of my guitar amplifier in far right cabinet. (you have to start somewhere -right!) Note that the decorative columns between each of the display cases are really full pull out shelving units to hold DVD colection. I used brass door knockers for handles. Other projects such as wooden drum & dulcimer are displayed on shelving. I like the new basement but it took a little work. Thanks for looking. Any comments appreciated.
