    So I built all the cabinets in my home and now another set for my shop. My son is a general contractor he went out on his own last year when covid hit. He is doing very well so far!

    Anyway he approached me with the opportunity to build cabinets in one of his rental homes so testing the waters to see if I can get them out in a timely manner. If so I'll probably start a side business and buy some better tools that will increase my efficiency and I will be able to write them off too.

    These are in my shop, still need to install some crown trim and make the island so the hanging lights can be purchased.

    Thanks Mark and sandlapper.

    Schhhhh! That's where I keep my gold bars for when SHTF times come. Seriously just a sheet of plywood painted same color as the walls. It's just a small area of waisted space. A friend had a small space in his lake cottage and his son is a professional cabinet maker and laid it out like thet so I pretty much just copied his design.

    You got skills man! Really like the bright white. Makes the room look like a light is not needed in the Day time. Save a little on the E-Bill.
