So, I built this tv. entertainment cabinet for this guy 18 yrs. ago and now he wants it modified to fit a 60"wide tv.in it.
I’m looking around the shop for scrap material to accomplish this job and wouldn’t you know it, I find the left over pieces from that job, 18 yrs. ago. And it’s just enough to do it. That’s weird!
What is your weird and unusual shop story?

That’s a great story.

Losing fingers since 1969

I’m an antiques dealer and do my own restoration, I buy all sort of parts sometime to fix up some times to use the pieces to fix something else. I had bought a bookcase base, with doors it sat in my warehouse for years just never got around to doing anything with it. The other day in an antique shop 100 miles from where I have bought the base I found a top I planed to make a simply Plymouth base for. When I got it back to my shop it fit the base perfectly, the back boards even ran straight threw. I’ve “married” up tops and bases be for, but actually finding the original part, never.

Steve,

What a pity the customer isn’t a bit more resourceful. He could have done this: LOL
