· A small (29×13x7) parts cabinet for hardware (hinges, knobs, pulls etc.) from Redheart, Erythroxylum spp. And Bigleaf Maple Acer macrophyllum. Finished in clear shellac, with Brass pulls. Yes that’s the real color.

Just in case anyone is wondering about that shallow drawer at the bottom. I would like to say that I planned it that way for little tiny stuff. But the fact is I inlayed the sides before I remembered to cut the sides to length and I’ll be damned if I was going to start over with a shorter board. So anyway I made a shallow drawer at the bottom because I planned it that way.

This looks too nice to use in a wood shop! Really well done though.

Beautiful work. Great design too. I think every parts cabinet should have a shallow bottom drawer.

Looks like an overdo for a tool /parts cabinet, however after checking out your bench top and lots of other nice builds and blogs I have come to the conclusion a mouse may have built it for you and is living in the ground floor apartment rent free!!.......and… which level does the chicken reside?

Come to think of it just where abouts do you live at?

Nice work, a real work of art. Since I usually get this comment thought I would pass it on. You have a better shop cabinet than most have fine furniture.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture and is so nicely done, but it’s also a very practical piece since it’s a shop storage piece for small hardware, etc. It displays very nice details and craftsmanship.

the color of this piece is stunning. And the inlay highlights it very well.

Let me put it this way, if I said this was meant as a tool box of sorts, you’d be sending condolences to maximum security cell A1 to the recently widowed Mrs AHPDEB being questioned by the bizarre passing of her husband who “fell” with the back of his neck on a 4lb hammer.
