DIY Cabinets Part 1 – Boxes

The Shop Girl In a past life I built custom cabinets for clients. It started when my book keeping job for our family construction company didn’t keep me occupied. My dad asked me if I wanted to help him in the shop, and boom I fell in love. My dad is an expert carpenter, and [...]
