Rolling Tool Cabinet was and idea for friend who is metal worker. He gave me two nice walnut logs that in milled and dried. The idea was to look like metal cased cabinet. Kind of an Industrial look was added with the use of button plugs and wood battens. Black lacquer box and natural walnut top and drawers with clear lacquer top coat.
Thanks for looking.

Well done.

That is totally outstanding. I’m intrigued how you cut the drawer pulls. They look so practical for so many different projects.

Really fine work, the tool box look is in full effect (just need a Snap-on or Matco badge 8^)

Too nice for my workshop!

nice looking, functional.

I like the design elements around the side and back. Overkill for a shop cart, but I like it anyway.
