Indiana Cabinetmaker Takes on Vintage Camper Restoration

Wed Mar 29, 2017

ANDERSON, Indiana β€” While most Hoosiers were hibernating for the winter in front of their TV sets and fireplaces, local cabinetmaker Keith Boze was hard at work on his latest project: restoring a vintage camper.

β€œIt took me three and a half months, seven days a week of working on it to get it done this winter,” Boze says, who owns GK Boze & Co. Cabinetmakers, 525 W. Eighth St, according to a story by the Herald Bulletin.

Boze spotted the dilapidated camper on one of his daily walks around his neighborhood and approached the owner to see if it was for sale.
