Bob,
Nice, very nice!
Do you build 1:1 cabinets? My new house could use your skills.

Thanks for your comments Ted and Dave.

Dave, as a matter of fact I do, or I should say did. Many of the cabinets and more around my home were made right here in my shop or on site.

Dave,
I should have known you could build cabinets! Talent runs deep!
I had 3 years of cabinet making in high school and really enjoyed it but never followed through with cabinet building later in life.

Sorry for the slowdown, guys, but if you have followed any of my past builds you know I like
to make my interiors as a slide in draw so I can work on it at any time. I'm at a point when I'm
working on smaller stuff because I'm still waiting for the dry transfer letters to arrive,
they supposedly have shipped. It's a domino effect, I cannot finish the windows without the
letters, I cannot finish the front walls until the windows are done, I cannot make the interior
drawer until the front walls are installed so I can fit it properly.

I am waiting for the mailman today!!

Cheers,
Bob

No, letters did not come in, Drats!!

I'm working on the interior drawer as far as I can take it before the front walls are done. I
have also done the windows as far as I can until the letters come in.

This is printed out on paper. The letters might not match but will give me something to
space them on. If you look at the photo from the front you can see there are some smaller
window panes along the tops of the larger windows, kind of hard to see. I simplified it
to smaller panes consisting of just an oval within a rectangle, drawn with thick lines
and repeated over and over.



This is the same graphic on paper with the lettering removed



This is that second graphic printed on overhead slide clear plastic sheet.



This is the same graphic but I changed my mind and made the little panes green. I also
went over the mortar and pestle with a gold Sharpie and then drew in the Rx with a fine
black sharpie.



More when the letters come in.

Bob

At Last!! The dry transfer letters arrived last evening. I will try to get them used today if I
can make it before football comes on!! I have made a change already, I bought both white and
gold lettering and it looks to me like the white will show up much better than the gold, both are
OK for this purpose. In addition, I was able to get a finer pointed white Sharpie than the gold
and thus better control in using it on the windows. First I have to redo the mortar and pestle
graphics in white.

I now have all the graphics done in white. My next step was most likely not needed but I
wanted to make sure the graphics would not get ruined. The real windows were painted
from the inside so I took pieces of clear laminating sheet and applied them to each
window to seal the graphics in. After that was trimmed to the size of each window I cut
pieces of green painted styrene half round and glued them in place to represent the
frames dividing the main window areas from the upper small panes.

Will have a photo a bit later today.

Bob

Thanks Bill.

Here they are installed. Still needs a bit of touch-up but Charlie stopped by for an
inspection and I thought I might as well grab a few photos.

Nice work once again.

Bob,
Viewing your pharmacy building is like taking a step back in time. A beautiful rendition of a classic business.
Well done!
Dave

Bob,

Beautifully done windows and colors all over.

Question - is the corner post something you're really tied to? It almost appears as if Charlie couldn't pull the door open for hitting the post.

Looks fantastic, Bob!!

P.S. the door should open in anyway.
