I had this looking at me a year ago. Reminded me of something in a Tom Hanks movie.

I saw this cabinet door on another forum. It was in a Baptist minister’s home. He told the contractor to GET IT OUT!

The same house had this one too:

Here is a Shaker cabinet that I made for my sister and it has a veneered front that I had glued up as a practice for learning some vacuum veneering. I had no real plans for it when i glued the panel. To me it looks like a Can-Can dancer.

No pictures, just memories of my uncles work with knotty pine. Collected the pine from WWII shipping crates as the material in crates was better than could be bought at the lumber yards due to the “war effort”. He made horse heads, and other faces and patterns through book matching the pine boards. Use to amaze this youngster!
