    Default $15 display cabinet

    Hey guys, I just picked up this oak cabinet for $15! I thought it would look cool hanging in my barber shop with 10-12 razors on display... Maybe a few brushes or mugs?

    I think that is a great plan and a great deal. I'm not sure you can replace the glass in the door for that much money.

    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    I bought it from a good ol PA Dutch farm boy. He said he put a little work into it and was happy to make a few bucks. I didn't argue. We talked a minute about the ambition and ingenuity of the people in our region. Good stuff.

    Default Cabinet Face lift

    Each shelf had a face board that was an eighth inch taller than the shelf itself. It blocked the complete view of the razor and scales displayed so I replaced the face boards with more narrow, decretive moulding. Imagine pic2 upright.

    Excellent choice of molding. Adds class and style.
    Looks way better than the plain strips.
    Any plans for how the razors will be displayed?
