Not mine, but a crazy deal. If anyone in DFW brings some up, let me know!

I'll say that if I could get commitment on 8-12 cabinets at somewhere between $100-150 each to members in DFW, Houston, Austin, etc. - I'd probably consider grabbing a buddy and a U-Haul and picking these up and delivering them to members on Monday. Just a thought. Sorry for the mark-up, but transport isn't going to be cheap (pricing out now).

Any idea as to the dimensions of those? I'd be interested in one if they're not gigantic. They look brand new!

I'll find out dimensions.

2 down (although Houston is much further from Singleton than I initially thought...). 6-8 to go.

I'd do a hundred bucks on one if they're in good shape for sure.

I'd be down for 2 for a bill each. Austin as well.

Do it. Yeah, I don't think there's going to be enough for me to really make it worth while - bet you could snag 3-4 pallets pretty cheap. I kind of thought about buying some extras and refurb-ing/painting them and selling them on CL and here... just wish it was closer.

I'd be happy to go pick up some pallets of these depending on the dimensions. My shop is in Hutto and I have pallet jacks...so this could be pretty easy...
