Well I am getting into the restoration of these two cabinets and here is how it looks so far.
1940’s small Hoosier:
This cabinet is going to require a lot of work. The lower cabinet on the left side is warped really bad. This is going to require either replacement of the panel or attempts to salvage what is there. Either the cabinet suffered water damage causing the wood to warp or an altitude change may have affected the surfaces or both! The rest of the cabinet looks solid and will require the usual resto including sanding, primer and paint.
1950’s metal kitchen cabinet:
The cabinet is pretty much complete. I only have to cut some wood to make the cutting board. I’m happy with the final piece.
