Yes will be furniture quality , the plan is to have in my shop ,but the wife might change her mind . Now I am bidding on some original hardware and looking for a craigslist fridge to dis-assemble and the temp controller and a old antique style dial face mounted thermometer ...I will post the build but I can only work on it during the weekends
