My kitchen cabinet was partly destroyed by white ants. Engaged a caperter to repair it but he dismaltled everything instead and replaced with the new one. The old doors were reused since they were intact.
A portion of the cabinet (open shelf without door) whiich was supposed to be thrown away seem to be ok. I kept it. Then I installed a pair of new doors, added top crown moulding and gave it a little shellac touch-up and it is there hangging on the wall ready to serve…

Thank you Rustic, Dusty, Charlie for your kind words and every one for viewing.
With this post I meant to express my thought that when thing can be recyled do not throw it away. Make good use of it within our capability.

Thank you

Very nice save.

What are white ants? They don’t sound very nice.

Some call them white ants, others call them “termites” – they are the same. They are woodworkers too. They work when we sleep.

Nicely done! The shelf on the side really makes it interesting. Good job of recycling.

I have a friend who lived in KL for years. He lives in London now. Every time he came back to the states, he brought something called “billes”(?). They were tiny dried fish, seasoned. They were great with beer and conversation. He loved Malaysia, and still has a house there. As always, bbqKing.

Hi woodworm,
Soon as I had a glance at your project I felt the oriental delight of the creator.
A very nice and clean work.
