Today turned out to be a good day. My wife and I hit the road this morning headed to Brenham, Tx. (75 mi one way from our house) to check out a cabinet door making business. Well, wouldn't ya know we got into town just in time for lunch.
We ate at a KBob's restaurant. The chicken fried steak was wondermous. (Rick, Google it, it is a southern thing!)
Once we were satisfied, we headed off down the street to find the business. The place is called Evans Cabinet and Doors
. Turns out they used to have a cabinet shop there for many years but closed that part down. Now they make doors, drawer fronts and drawer boxes.
The guy was really nice, laid back and answered all of our questions. He had a wall of sample doors and three different styles of drawer fronts. He described each part of the door and the options available. There are many.
After a 20-30 minute chat, he asked "wanna take a tour of the shop?". Why heck yeah!
So, off we went meandering through the tools and workers. I estimate about 15 or more. I didn't take a head count. But I sure like some of the tools...wide belt sanders, shapers, all sorts of tools with feeders...and a no nonsense glue rack. It looked like a rotisserie without the chickens on it! And there were two of them sitting side by side.
That was fun. My wife is in the kitchen right now cleaning out the cabinets. She is pumped! Cabinets will be coming down, maybe tomorrow...or maybe tonight if I stay out of her way.
