    Small update.
    All the cabinet work has finally been done and ready for painting.

    It certainly took a lot longer than normal due to the rebuilding I had to do on the back and front.
    The back box door required a lot of filling and sanding as it was made from reused timber. Some parts had three joins in them.

    Another quick update, the base coat and the top coat done.
    The paint covered the wood repairs so all looks good.
    I have just added the speckle, now to let it dry for a few days then start on the stencils

    First side finished, I had a few issues with the paint and the stencils that required a few touch ups. Not a 100% happy with the result but at least one side finished and clear coated.

    I'll give it a few days to set them start on the other side.

    And one side of the back box done as well.

    Nice work Trev. Another pin well on the way to being saved.
    What sort of stencils did you use out of curiousity?
