I would never have dreamed that we could bring a wine cabinet and hutch, solid wood, to a wedding as a gift for friends, before I learned building is easy. We went to a Halloween Party at our friends Ross and Brandy's new house, and took this picture of the wine cabinet I made them for their wedding. I am really happy with how it turned out, the picture is not the best, and I hope you can see how nice this piece turned out. I actually did a double take when I saw it!
