Hi Friends
With all of our business paperwork piling up I started building these file cabinets to go under my trestle table but then the boss thought it would fit better in the corner of the office but as one unit,so I switched gears and made adjustments to join the two together. It didn’t turn out to bad for using cheapie pine and left over ply. The true colors looked better and more even but the photos were not the best. Nothing that fancy but it will do the job.

Woods: pine plywood

Tools: table saw band saw chop saw

Wow! Those look great!!!
I’m back, thanks to The old man upstairs and some outstanding health care!
In September of last year I contracted a
Flesh eating bacteria, of all things, and was in the hospital for 65 days!
And on a wound vacation for 2 more months.
Not that you need to know all that!
To be honest, I really appreciate everything you have to offer with the wood working web.
It’s awesome, I just got the trusses
Finished today on my shed I was working on, when this 911 happened to me.
Take care and thanks
