    5 year Curio cabinet project complete

    Five years ago I bought a curio cabinet for $20 at a auction, that same year I started my metal detecting career in a 1912 railroad logging camp that suffered a fire and burned a row of 14 bunkhouses and four family houses on my folks property. The next five years would be a history lesson on this particular camp and now that I am comfortable that I have found everything I could possibly find its time to put the finds in the cabinet and my lady can stop calling me "Trinkets" from all the treasures needing dusting all the time.

ID:	1410762this cabinet has so much going for it, aside from the old lime green paint and a couple tubes of caulk, it painted up nice. The cabinet is a high end "Habersham" from Georgia, much to my surprise...Click image for larger version.
