Showcase cover image for Bookcase up-cycled into display cabinet/bar

Project Information

Project was to take apart a hand me down bookshelf that sat vertical and use the parts as shelving and build a horizontal display cabinet and bar out of it.

Materials: 1by 12 radiotta pine, 1/4 plywood, 3/4 plywood
Custom paint mix sprayed to blend bookshelf parts and new material.

After cabinet was built a reciprocal saw was used to make the gouges to distress the piece to match as existing table.

What is the tent for? I thought finishing, but it appears not big enough.

It is a portable spray booth. It is 8ft by 6ft. It took some doing to use it but it worked out fine and protected my table saw behind it from overspray.

Yep my workbench and other tools. When I hit the lottery my shop will have a dedicated spray booth.

Thanks I have the most fun making something out of something else. My workbench is made oak salvaged from the trash after it was used by the railroad as cribbing to hold water piping on the train cars.
