Finally complete! This is the cabinet that my son requested for Christmas. He may receive it by the 4th of July. He is serving in the the Army at Fort Bragg. He just made it through selection to Special Forces. He has received several challenge coins and needed a place to display them. This cabinet has many “firsts”. First cabinet, first time using cope and stick router bit set, first one board project. This is the Ash board that I found in my Dad’s shop in Michigan and brought it back to CA with me. It has 2 coats of Deft Danish Oil, and 2 coats of Zar satin poly. It was designed on Sketchup. Why did it take so long? Had to learn Sketchup, the cope and stick bit set, and had to fix some mistakes. The Pinnacle rule is 6” and is included for size comparison.

Very well done, Bravo Zulu to you. God bless to our Armed forces from another veteran. Where in Los Angeles are you? I’m in Lakewood near Long Beach.

Looks great. I made one for my nephew, never thought of a mirror. Don’t tell him, he’ll want another.

Ken, LAX. I think I saw you, and your wife, at the Lie Nelson event at Cerritos College.

Kate, I wont.
