Yes, those are unfortunately too small. Many universities

looking cabinets, even from 6 feet.

Mike, you could just follow your better-half to the arts and crafts
place where you'll find some contact papers of all kinds of wood
patterns. This might sound simplistic, but I've seen some that weren't
cheap and looked great. Ric

Thanks for your kind reply. I appreciate it.

Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. The object is not to make the
set look good, the object is to make it look original. So, plasticated
contact paper is not the goal. The object is restoration to "like
new" state. So, the use of like original materials, in like original
tones is important to those who do this.

Thanks again for your reply.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
