Model Home Wall Units

When I was first starting out I landed a contract building Cabinetry for some model homes.  
There was a variety of stuff but here are some of the wall units. These were built on very low budgets back in the early 80's.

Also below are some 80's Oak Wall units (and a desk unit) that I built for other clients.

And then just some more Misc. Stuff

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Bently,
You'll never retire!  You certainly do build some BIG stuff.  They must make for very interesting installs!  All of them look perfectly executed . . . just what we've come to expect from you.

Thanks L/W,
I also did about 12-13 years of commercial work with a hand full of shop guys.  I don't post pictures of that stuff though,  wasn't made by me personally.  Mostly Retail Store Fronts and their display fixtures.
Here is an example of one we did inside the Caesars Forum Mall. The whole inside had a castle theme,  it was a fun build.

Do you do the faux marble painting, too?

No,  but sometimes I wish I did.  I did this store front,  which was an awful lot of work,  then IMO got destroyed by the faux painting. (Those arches were on the inside and out,  were fun to make.)

Did I mention those arches? lol

Bently,
You really do some spectacular work!  It has to be discouraging when someone completes it with mediocre painting. 
(Maybe they have never seen real marble?)
