yard sale fixer upper ...

THIS IS A BUDGET BUILD
I pick this cabinet up at a yard sale for $ 5.00 last weekend .Very bad shape
My daughter needs a snake terrarium stand . I thought , I can make this work .
Here I go .
This is what i started with . No top .No shelf .No back panel . I do have a door
I striped it to my best . I built a shelf out of scrap panel wood ,

Nice job. Looking forward to seeing the final product

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

That is some piece of trash .... nicely done. I even like the color.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

She is all in John Deere . Her room is John Deere green .
John Deere here is so in . It's not funny . John Deere boots, belts , shoes , hats , sun glass , drinking cups , clothes , name plates , toys and so on .
Maybe John Deere is in every where . All I know , it's very poplar here .
