My mother needed a new printer cabinet and she could not find one she liked. She also knew I was way behind on projects so she took matters into her own hands. She had a pile of old barn wood, a chop saw, and small workbench table saw. She has used a chop saw before but never really took on any project like this. I have to say it turned out real nice and being proud of her I wanted to share.
