I built this cabient to help organize the shop. I bought a book from fellow LJ sorry I can’t remeber his name but it was very helpful. I used reclaimed wood from old high school bleachers. The man in the photo is my father he is a 90 year old WW11 vetran. He’s a retired carpenter raised 12 kids driving nails.

Nice cabinet.

You’re a lucky man to still have your dad around. 12 kids, huh? That’s a feat in itself…imagine surviving that. LOL

That is super nice! Same from me on thanking your father for his service during WWII..loads of respect are due them.!!!
It reminds me of my Grandfather when I was a kid….. when is was photo time and my mother was taking lots of photos he would always say ” It doesn’t cost any more for me to get in the picture…. does it Barbara?”

He is one reason it is called the greatest generation. People don’t realize the sacrifices ALL Americans made to support the war effort. My father was a WWII veteran, Air Corps in the Pacific Theatre. I read in my DAV magazine that they are dying at the rate of 1,000 per day. Consider how many million men and women were involved in that war.
Before I forget, those are nice cabinets. Twelve drawers would try my patience.

Very nice cabinets….very nice, indeed….One can never have enough storage in the shop….Don’t worry, you’ll fill them drawers up quicker than you think…..And on your dad….I too am a vet (Viet Nam), and guys like him paved the way for the Korean and Viet Nam vets for the road ahead…..He raised 12 kids… grandpa and grandma had 13 kids…....I wonder if they knew each other……........!!!!!

Thanks for all the nice comments about the cabient. But even a bigger thanks the nice comments about dad. He’s a great man that is really respected in the small town of Okarche, Oklahoma. I am not sure if he was more respected as a carpenter or as veteran that saw a ton of action in the war.

Thanks nakedjoinery! Yes, he was very picky but he always had more more than he could handle because of it.
