I do have some decorating sense, ya know.

Lisa had a cabinet in the dining room under my barbed wire displays and had approached her dad about building an upper piece for it. He priced the wood and that kind of shot that idea in the ass but then he came dragging this home from the flea market today. Heavy motherfucker, probably weighed 200 pounds, but he bought it for about 1/4 of the price of the materials to build one.



So now Lisa has her day's work cut out for her, cleaning it all up and trying to figure out what to put in there and and to arrange it, you know, girly shit.
Hell, it would take me about 5 seconds to decorate it - put an ammo oddity collection in there - start with a 500 Nitro Express in the middle of the top shelf and stagger them down in size on either side, coyote calls on the middle shelf, electronic calls and locators in the middle of the bottom with hydration bladders and ghillie material scattered around, slap a coyote skull on either side on the lower cabinet, then smear the whole motherfucker with sage camo grease sticks.
She did not take my suggestion well, as a matter of fact I'm pretty much banned from going near it.

I am soooo glad we understand each other darling!

So then, your suggestions about how to decorate it worked then?

Bart - Ahhh........ no.

I think coyote skulls would look nice in there.

Corey said...

My mom's got one of those fucking things. Dam thing ways closer to 400 though.

drjim said...

Man, that's some fine woodworking there!

wirecutter said...

Corey - It took 3 men to carry it in, might've weighed more but it was awkward as hell.

Jim - It cleaned up real nice, just has a couple of nicks near the top that need to be touched up.

Nice piece, use crayon for the touch up. A skull peak'n over the top corner would look good.

wirecutter said...

Oh, she's getting a goddamned bullet or or at least a coyote tooth in there somewhere whether she likes it or not, WoodBurner.

At least you didn't leave whoo-haw prints on her glass doors.

drjim said...

You can get these pretty neat things like a paint stick at Home Depot and Lowe's. They have them in a lot of different shades, so you can match the wood.

BUT....take Lisa with you! *EVERY* stinking time I bought one without Dorothy being with me, I got the wrong damn color!

wirecutter said...

Shit, I have that problem going to the Walmart, Jim.

Looks like a nice pistol display case.

It always seems that our wife's do not appreciate our input when it comes to interior decorating.

Sheesh!
