Magic-Trick Cabinet

Mike and Pat Erving
Manasquan, New Jersey

We got a new flat-screen, but it didn't work with the old cabinet: It was too big for the TV slot, and it would be too high sitting on top. My husband, Mike, chopped the top and bottom off the old cabinet and put those parts together, and now the TV sits on top, and it's the perfect height. He cut the door down, had the glass cut down to size, and covered the seam with molding. You cannot tell at all, and it cost only $6 to get the glass cut and $8 for the molding. He's very handy.
