View Full Version : Shaper Cabinet Shaping Up

Well here is a shot of the shaper's cabinet that I've been working on. Although I did not take a photo of it as I received it you can get an idea of what it looked like from the green draw fronts... :eek: it was all that color. I striped the top and sanded then finished it with mahogany stain. Cleared and painted the case hammered black.

Almost there...

Ah that's better... :)

Still working on the machine... getting there but a bit more to go.

That's a well made and useful cabinet I like the way you are bringing it back to it's formal glory. It does you credit many people will not expend the energy and time required and simply buy new .So well done Alistair p s Greens a good colour for a topcoat:D:D:D

If that thing were blue and grey I'd say you got it from the place that I once worked. We had a few of them with drill presses bolted to them. The drawers are great for holding drils, clamps and little scraps of wood for drilling into.

Nice job.
