Nearly 7 years in the making…

35 drawers hundreds of box joints, sanded, glued, routed, laser engraved… hours of work…

Those who remember when I started this, may not believe that it is finally finished…

Laser engraved with names of various spices what will live in the drawers…

Actually a flash spice cabinet…contrasting finger joints and brass knob surrounds…

This may be the final project that I made from scratch…atho I did have a little help from some very dear friends.

Larry – long time no hear!!!!

I really can’t beleive this is finished! This project of yours gave me the inspiration to not only build one, but two of these cabinets so I KNOW the amount of tedius effort it takes to get this type of thing finished and looking as good as this does.

Great job, my friend!

Ha! Wow! Great job to follow through and not give up on a tedious project. Something I have always loved, but I would be scared to even start. It must feel so rewarding to be done and finished so beautifully.

This is a fine beautiful storage cabinet for the shop. It would make any shop a better and more efficient place to work in.

Hey Larry great to hear from you. this is a great looking Apothecary I can see where it might take a while to get er done. The laser work on the drawers is the icing on the cake.

Gadzooks, Larry, that’s a pretty thing, and must have been a, hmmm, tedious thing to build. Thanks for the display…

I take it now is not the time for someone to ask you to make a few dozen box joint boxes? 8^)

That is going to be one large spice collection. glad to see it complete!
