Just finished these cabinets for some great clients with a sweet 4x4 Sprinter. Fun project. A nice change from building cabinets for houses. Wish the van was mine. Wish I could afford one!

The compressor and lazy-boy, every shop must have! From my stand-up compressor I piped pvc lines in the walls of my garage so I could have a slinky hose at each station. I get blazed while tinkering around in the shop from time to time and forget to turn off the compressor- it usually goes off at about 2 am and my wife absolutely shits a brick...haha!

Thanks for the kind words! I'll think of working conditions in Alaska next time one of my employees is sniveling about working in the 60 degree mist.

I used to contribute to this thread, but thatís run itís course. I still build homes and remodel homes, but the attractive flavor is gone. My work is above par, but my heart just isnít into it anymore. Maybe itís time to hang up the tool belt and try something else. What that may be, I have no freaking idea. You all do some really beautiful and creative work, bravo!

Just ordered one of these from Cosco, going to save a ton of money and board feet at the same time.

So, does making sawdust qualify as Ďbuildingí? Walnut, Cumaru, Pecan, Honduran Mahogany, Aromatic Cedar, and Magnolia...

Hopefully the end result will look better - a jewelry box pour La Femme.

Brandon, that proverbial brick wall of which you speak is out there for me someday- every sh!ty client, subcontractor in crisis or employee that's gone lazy pushes me a little closer.

I suppose I could just walk away, become a Walmart greeter and take showers at the Y.

We installed 12 foot barn doors on this house I just built- not sure why?

I'm guessing a designer was involved?
where did those doors come from?
solid or veneer?

Homeowner- people are hell bent on having barn doors.

Doors are laminated mixed species core with a 1/2" veneer.

Yup, barn doors are the current "cool" thing. Neighbor has them, but doesn't have any cows?

Yes,the barn doors are all the rage,trouble is they are not legal egress over here.

Done got busted twice now.

I tell homeowners ,you can put them in ,after the CEO and I are gone.


Edit:Good Luck Brandon, I went back to school and I am still there, I find it pretty hard to walk away and I am hardly into any of it ,anymore. Yet I continue .

Contractor is that the liquor cabinet/bar behind the barn doors?
With that big window above, I was expecting them to be a privacy/light blocker in front of glass doors going to a patio or something.
