It has been raining here a lot so I haven't had many days where I could pull out the teardrop and fiberglass it. Doing that today though finally!!

Did manage to get the cabinet doors made and install the hinges/hardware.

White mark on the door is the sun or something, its not actually on the wood

Thanks David! I had to go with a solid piece for the drawers. If I made shaker styles they weren't tall enough to use a drawer handle. I just did a soft round over on the edges with the orbital sander. I am happy with them :thumbsup:

The first time I saw that color I thought it was awful. :thumbdown: Then as I see it more I am really liking it. :thumbsup:

I really like the color match look.

Todd yeah I went back and forth between this and the Desert Tacoma. I think that would be a really sharp looking combo
