On an episode of The High Low Project" they were redoing a couples combined home office. They showed and antique metal cabinet that they recreated from a standard metal office cabinet (tall one with doors and shelves inside). They cut openings in top part of door for glass and added angle iron and metal studs around edges to get the finish. Either I walked out of the room or they didn't show the whole process. How would you add glass to the door and how would you attach the angle iron, etc.? Anyone else see this?!
I don't understand what this sentence means. But I do not think that cutting an opening in a metal door would be a job for an amateur and I don't understand what they were trying to achieve.
Also don't understand how they could make an "antique" out of something that wasn't.
I saw the beginning of that show but not the middle or end. I doubt they showed all the steps.
Most of those cabinets are pretty then and I would think any metal cutting blade would work. A picture frame wood molding would provide support for the glass and could be painted to look like metal. I would mount it on the inside. I am not sure of fasteners but likely metal screws.
I tried googling how to remake a metal cabinet but came up with nothing useful.
This site has hundreds of filing cabinet ideas.
