  5. Cabinet Almost Complete

    I (mostly) finished up a while ago but didn't get to posting until now. The cabinet is assembled and loaded with Guitars. I am debating a couple changes. I may build a slightly different Guitar Base support. I will also add my interior lights. It works as planned...
