These are 2 toy chests built by Keith Rackley, Bill Bagwell, and Bill Brett, for the upcoming Meyer Center auction.

August 2010

Three offices were each equipped with 3 wall cabinets and 4 base cabinets,
 2 of which contain file drawers, for a total of 21 cabinets. The project team
 was led by Bill Bagwell, and consisted of Bill Brett, Ron Critser, Ed Kroposki,
 Keith Rackley, Jerry Thomas, and Tom Vandiver. As can be seen by the pictures,
 the Meyer Center staff is quite pleased with the results.

These are five "little" chairs for the Meyer Center. The original chair plan had to be completely re-drawn for a smaller chair. Darryl Roberson and son George did most of this project, with Tony Ryan cutting out the legs, and Bobby Hartness helping cut a grove in the metal slides for the foot-rest.

We delivered more toys than they have children enrolled.  And that's a good thing!
