Glimpses of the future. And the past.

I veneered the stove wall cabinets today.  Yes, there are flaws – completely expected as I’d not done this before.  Actually, that isn’t quite true.  Veneer and its application is not unlike Formica/laminate.  My dad and I re-laminated a desk while I was in college.  It was a prop from a soap opera he’d worked on and had the character Mac Cory’s script lines written inside.   The major difference between today and 20 years ago is that the laminate project required contact cement – which stinks crazy bad.  Today’s project had self-adhesive peel-n-stick stuff.  Much better.

I really wish I’d gotten around to buying the hinges and then the full impact would be infinitely cooler.  But here you go:
