    I need to change the cabinet art on my #TSPP but do not have a lift / table cart, so was wondering if I could use saw horses? I was thinking of grabbing some metal saw horses, lifting and placing the table on top of the 2 horses then going to work.

    Can anyone suggest a way to do this, or some horses that they recommend? Thanks!

    You might have trouble with the sawhorses getting in the way when you get near the bottom lip of the cabinet.

    Maybe build a 2x4 or 2x6 frame just smaller than the cab size to boost it off the sawhorses to give you clearance.

    Just put shipping blankets on the ground and put the cabinet on them.

    Easy. Perfect height for sanding too.

    I just use a mechanic’s creeper. It’s small enough that I can get to the edges and I can wheel the cab out of the way easily. I use wheel blocks to keep it immobile when I put the cabinet down

    Nope. I've restored over 100 cabinets and everyone was done like rotordave.

    Thanks. Blankets on the floor?

    I have an old workbench that I put on wheels that's the perfect height for me.

    Being on wheels makes it great for moving it around or out of the way.

    (I just absolutely hate working on the floor)

    Np when installing decals after prime and painting but down blankets so doesn't get marked

    Late to this topic, but I use sawhorses for all my cabinet prep. Cabinet on the ground is too low and hurts my back being hunched over for extended periods of time. Decal installation IS done with cabinet at ground level with moving blanket.

    I built a couple of these out of 2 x 4s. Each a different height. Put locking wheels on them from Amazon. They work awesome.
