Garage Hobby Cabinet



A friend of mine gave me his grandfathers old desk to restore and keep if I wanted it. I enjoyed repairing the desk and built a cabinet in a space in my garage that work on some of my wood working and painting hobbies. I have limited space because at times I need to move a car into the garage. I also have small grandchildren so I needed a work area where I could secure projects with safety and. Accessability To our grand children limited and overseen by me. I use wood from wine crates for internal shelving. The door are made from discarded pallet wood and chicken wiring.
