I kind of copied our night stand for size and made a door that would accept these upright metal sign 12 1/2 inch wide by 16 inches high . And I put a piece of 1/4 in. plywood backer board for stffness behind the metal sign. The backer board is held in place with picture framing darts or you could use a small finnish nail or you could glue a small piece of wood but then you would not be able to change it . They have a movable shelf in them and oil finnish polyurethane . Gene

Nice night stand.

Can’t tell what model JD tractor from the pic, but it may be. I’ve worked on those old long-stroke johnny-poppers, but it’s been over 37 years ago. I have a little more experience with 4010/4020s…but still from that era. Enclosed cabs with A/C, FM radio and GPS nowadays…jeez. Next it’ll plow the furrows and plant the seeds…and harvest without a person in it.
