    Wow what more can you say, I bet if you start a thread about the finished cabinet, say guess what this is made from, none of us would have even come close to realising it start out life as a packing crate!

    Thanks Nige. To be honest, I was quite surprised myself at how well it finished out.

    Mate, what a fantastic display, the whole setup is museum quality. I think there will be a few blokes looking for packing crates!

    Steven, did you sand down the crate before you stained it? I can probably get hold of a crate or two but they are pretty rough, certainly too rough to stain without sanding. What was the stain you used? It looks absolutely outstanding and I would'nt mind doing one myself.
