Wow!
That is too purdy to use. :)
Seriously though, that is a fine job.
I need to go practice more!

Gorgeous tool chest. I expect that you’ve made some Gerstner owners jealous! Some people I know would love to have the piece as a jewelry chest. Looks like the storage space is about 3-4” deep in the top. What do you store in the top?

Stunning piece of work! I’d like to see what type of tools you house in this beauty!

Thank you everyone, it’s a daily reminder of how tedious woodworking can be.
The top houses manuals, the tray has become a misc. item collection, and the drawers hold everything from scrapers to wood burning tips and such.

Boy that’s a beautiful tool chest—and I agree: too pretty to use!

That is not a tool chest. That is a spoon cabinet…. and a beautiful one at that !!! Fine, fine work.

That is a beautiful tool chest, nice job. It looks like a classier gerstner chest.
