Friday Wisdom – Cabinets

This week I had some cabinets delivered for my workshop so here’s a few cabinet thoughts:

Early in my career I had a job selling file cabinets, labels makers, file folders and rolodexes to mafia offices – yeah, I was involved in organized crime.

Be very careful when opening up your medicine cabinet – you don’t want to wake the sleeping pills.

Did you hear about the man who died after his trophy cabinet fell on him? He was a victim of his own success.

Do you know why police departments have so many file cabinets? They’re for organized crime.

I found some fake noodles in a kitchen cupboard – it was an impasta.

My father used to say, “when one door closes, another will open.” Yes, he was terrible at making cabinets.

I will say that I had my doubts about buying a big metal cabinet with locking doors, but it proved to be a safe purchase.

I just saw a broken cabinet at the library looking for shelf-help books.

A buddy of mine use to install kitchen work surfaces, but he got arrested for counter fitting.

Did you hear that the PM meeting with the cabinet? Later he spoke to a bookcase and had an argument with a desk.

The CEO of IKEA was just elected president in Sweden – he said he’ll have his cabinet assembled by the end of the week.

    Referencing one of your jokes, we inherited the Victorian sideboard once owned by my wife’s grandmother, in probably the early 1900s. The left door of the cupboard has a habit of opening on its own and the theory has always been that it was either made or fitted by an apprentice. Whatever the truth, it’s been doing that for around 100 years+ now. We would never dream of having it mended!

    I certainly laughed at the Ikea reference. So true! And I hope we see your cabinets at some point. Your building projects are always of interest.
