    Yard and garden cabinet

    Using some of the 3" wide cedar boards a friend gave me, built a cedar cabinet closer than my shed for some of my yard, flower & garden stuff.

    For some reason I can't seem to upload the pictures from my computer, I get the page and click upload and then a red exclamation point comes up.

    I guess I'll try again tomorrow.

    Thanks ~Mike

    I put 2 coats of Superdeck natural on it inside and out, the pine trees I cut from another section of glued up cedar and dry brushed some green automotive paint and then put 2 coats of superdeck over that.

    It's 42" tall, 22" wide and 9" deep, the shelves are spaced (top to bottom) 11", 6", 6", 11" and are 6" deep.

    Mike, everything you build is done with a little extra flair. Those Pine trees turned a utilitarian cabinet into something super cool. Great work (and imagination) as always.
