In our family the saying is ''Crazy is in the eye of the beholder'' For me I would rather restore the cabinets while my brother restores the machines for me. I take a piece of the old veneer with me to get a good match. Veneer is really easy to replace. And since you can now purchase a water based epoxy the ventilation problem is gone. Like vanginney says this is ONLY the beginning--I can not leave a sad machine in or out of a cabinet sitting in a store or yardsale. All they need is a little TLC and a loving home.
