It's been another wild and crazy week around here. I work better under pressure wouldn't have it any other way. Mother Nature is cooperating with us this weekend with promises of Spring like temperatures, along with more wind. It could be so much worse, after 13 days of clouds and rain I'm more than ready for sunshine bring on the wind.
A couple of weeks ago I was visiting with a friend talking construction as we often do. During the conversation my cabinet over the desk was brought up and how I disliked the cross bar design. It felt too heavy. just not the traditional look I was going for.
picture I could find of the whole cabinet. YIKES!!! Everything was so dark and heavy. I'd forgotten how busy everything was. Are you surprised when you pull up pictures of the past? Can you see the cross bars?They always felt off to me, the alignment of the cross pieces was off with the placement of the shelves. I had new cabinet doors made many years back and had the glass added. The stain job has always bothered me, it just never matched 100%.
HERE I just had to pull about a thousand nails, and do a bit of touch up. After measuring I took them out to the saw cut them down, touched them up and installed them the next day. Can you see the difference? These shelves are thicker and have a beautiful mitered edge.
