Started like this:

Original cabinet without the stereo:

Ended up like this:

Happy!

Looks good and you gained more storage, which is always needed.

I extricated a large bird nest from the back side of my pin box! It had to have been less than 2 weeks old.

I replaced the broken toilet foot/flush valve and then finally installed OC's awning hold down brackets and my painter poles. This weekend I will be installing my LED awning lights.

This was done in less than 12 hours. Left the bag chair outside, leaned up against the TT and this bird worked while we were sitting in our recliners.

Either the rent was to low, or food to good!

Thanks! The face is 1x2 poplar because I had it on hand and it is light. The corner bracing is 1x1 pine. That panels were the thinnest hardwood plywood HD had and are about 3/16" after sanding. The stain is Minwax Gel Stain (swear by it) in Cherrywood and I always use Minwax pre-stain for even coverage. Some square head cabinet screws and pin nails and that's it. Less than $30 out of pocket and some of my time.

Last year I had a Robin make a nest 3 times on the tire of my truck in one day, every time I took it down she came back. Funny but not high off the ground to make it safe from predators.

Nice Truck, what year was the old and what genus the new one? I was looking at old F350 Diesels Crew cab SRW AWD but even a 2008 is fetching $30-$40K so I think I am going to buy my F150 EB Crew off of Ford at the end of the lease, just love the Torque the V6 Twin Turbos deliver and I am only towing 6,000#'s truck is rated for 11,300#'s
