Retro Kitchen Cabinets

A finished pic of some retro kitchen cabinets I recently built: It turned out well I think,but it made me really appreciate all of the technology in current cabinet building/designing that makes not only the construction process more efficient but the operation of modern hardware is pretty slick in comparison to the retro 3/8″ overlay hinge.

    Everything looks beautiful, Tohner. That kitchen reminds me of the way that my Dad built things…looks almost identical to some cupboards that he would have built in the 60’s. You did an exceptional job on design and build. Nice work. Mark.

    I could use you out here. Trying to find a ‘quality’ chippy is almost impossible. We are in mid throws of converting an old (huge) tobacco drying barn, and every time I imagine some new feature I end up saying “but who the hell would be find to build it”.

      Cro, sounds like a very interesting project. How old is that building? I am always in awe of the age of buildings across the pond. When we have an old farmhouse here in Texas and its late 1800’s it’s considered ancient history. If I could only float my truck and trailer over there…..hmmmm..ha.ha.

    DAMMIT MAN! This old computer I am working on (XP) is either suffering from computer Parkinson’s or there is some Google/WordPress feud I don’t know about, but I can’t view your pics…makes me craze…

    I say we blast over to wherever Cro is (I think that is a French name) and do whatever it is he needs done to his old tobacco barn. A million years ago I read an article in Wooden Boat about these guys who traveled the world with a couple shipping containers filled with tools and wood.

    WTF is a “chippy”? Is that what they call carpenters in EuroLand? Chippy…no, I cannot see it. Wood Butcher, “car-painter”, sure…

    I am now currently employed remodeling high-end condos (is there any other kind?) and spend my days in the sky, air-conditioned and ocean-viewed but I would drop EVERYTHING to fly away and create a giant work of art from some Paleolithic wooden structure.

    Let me know. You’re the World Famous One, after all. But I can still bust a move when the need arises.

      Well the pics aren’t all that anyway,but I’m happy with the way the cab’s turned out. Cro (cro-magnon) not to be confused with experimental band in the 60’s is a pretty cool dude. If you have time and are in the mood I put his site on my blog roll Magnonsmeandering. I found it (blog) while on a late night safari looking for souls that I could connect with several months ago. He lives in the French countryside but spent the first part of his life in England ( I think). An interesting dude indeed and yes I’ve thought about more then once about traveling the world dragging my hammer and family with me building adventures one project at a time. Chippy was a new term to me as well had to look it up (call me anything just don’t call me late to dinner) glad to hear your in the A.c but please! no bragging for those of us that are still acclimating to the heat and humidity. For some reason this just came to mind: a place my father and I once visited in New Mexico on our way to Colorado a Spanish Mission had a beautiful spiral staircase that went up to a (choir) loft and it was completely void of any center support nor was it attached on the sides. The (nuns) had a story about the carpenter that mysteriously showed up to town and built this architectural wonder and then disappeared without ever receiving payment.

Palo Duro Canyon and the Sorenson cabin is where we spend tonight. Dubbed the Texas Grand Canyon the second largest canyon in the United States. The first people to inhabit this canyon were the Clovis and Folsom people who hunted large herds of mammoth and giant bison. The cabin was built in the 30’s by the CCC. The first European explorers to come upon the canyon were members of the Coronado expedition in 1541. At that time, the Apache people called the canyon home. Francisco Vasquez de Coronado led 1,500 men in a Thanksgiving celebration in May of 1541, which is the real first Thanksgiving in America. The Apache were later run out by the Comanche and Kiowa tribes, who had the advantage of horses brought over by the Spanish. #palodurocanyon #txparks#getoutside#cabin#explore
Art and travel have some things in common and the more you see the more your mind opens. It was Mark Twain that said :Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. And while Cadillac Ranch wasn’t exactly my kind of art I do appreciate it exists. It’s both ridiculous and iconic and in a way fits into its stark prairie background. It was moved to its current site in 1997 2 miles to the west right off where historic Route 66 once laid. I just hope when they moved it and reburied them nose-first in the ground, it’s still at an angle corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. #cadillacranch #amarillo #amarillobymorning #marktwain#noreservations
So after they shut down the entire San Juan Wilderness we headed north. We explored the Rio Grande National Forest. The pictures and video are from the South Fork Rio Grande. These high elevation creeks are where it’s at for me. Hard to wade,hard to cast,the fish are as spooky as they come. But the beauty is unparalleled. Oh and speaking of fish I caught an enormous rainbow.......well that was until he took a sky high run and spit the hook. No pictures just a single tear shed. I’ve got the memories though....
Made it to the top of the Continental Divide and spent some time on the CDT trail. At about 11,400 ft we even had a snowball fight in 70 degree weather with what was left of the snow. We were able to see all this before they shut down the entire San Juan Wilderness for wildfire concerns.#continentaldividetrail #wolfcreekpass#getoutside
Treasure Falls named after a local legend about “a treasure of gold” buried in the mountain the falls plunge from. The main drop is approximately 105’. Located in the San Juan mountains in the Rio Grande National Forest. It’s most definitely a treasure and it has nothing to do with gold. #treasurefalls #riograndenationalforest #sanjuanwilderness #waterfalls#dontgochasingwaterfalls #getoutside#natureisthecure
In the Echo Amphitheater inside the Carson National Forest we hiked to the face and let out our own rallying cry,listening for the returning echos ringing through the desert. A powerful place with an odd feeling of both being both alone but with a distinct sense of someone watching...... Legend has it that In the spring of 1861, some farmers who had come from Iowa to settle and farm in Northern New Mexico were set upon by a band of Navajo. The settlers were taken to the top of the amphitheater and executed. Their blood spilled into the amphitheater, staining its walls. Three years later, when the Navajo were being forced on the “Long Walk” to Bosque Redondo by the U.S. Army, ten Navajo men were killed at the top of the amphitheater in retribution for the earlier deaths. Once again, blood spilled down the walls of the amphitheater. The blood seeped into the pores of the rock and dried and supposedly is still visible today. It is said that in the echoes returned from the cliff’s walls one can hear the anguished cries of the dead, hence its name, #echoampitheater #carsonnationalforest #getoutside#explore#newmexico#walkinginthedesert #onahorsewithnoname
A long...long....long time ago dinosaurs left tracks in the mud of an ancient ocean. (Theropod and Sauropod tracks) we walked and stalked in those very footprints in the Paluxy River in Dinosaur Valley State Park. #dinosaurvalleystatepark #txparks#getoutside#texasparksandwildlife
