I built this shop supply cabinet in the style of a New Mexican trastero to experiment with southwestern motifs and carvings. Made of solid poplar.

Very impressive. I had to Google ‘Trastero’. I love the way you have incorporated nice pieces into your workshop instead of just making something that’s functional.

Thank you, Brit. This piece is based on this piece in a Roswell, NM museum.

That’s fantastic! I love using poplar for all sorts of shop jigs and of course casework for drawers, but you have shown the beautiful side of it. Great job and love that you spend the time on something elegant for your shop.

Very nice. I love that you use it in your shop!
