the carcess is made from tulip and the drawer fronts are made from iroko which makes it light so its not to heavy when i load it full of tools

Do the drawers ride on wood glides?

pommy,
Looks great! I never would have chosen something with drawers for my first project! Your ambition however seems to have been a great success, amply rewarded. I too am curious as to what type wood you used? Does it have an oil base finish or clear varnish or lacquer applied?
Congratulations on a great first project.

Regards,
Ken McGinnis

Pommy,there's a few things going on there but who cares… you got her done and it was a learning experience.
Way better than my first tiered project.

At least your drawers close without a boot! <g>

Sweet!

I think its a beautiful job! I especially like your choice of wood. It looks like something your wife would like to kick your tools out of & store silverware in.

Pommy, Great build! Drawers for the first project can be quite challenging, but you appear to have passed the test.

Beautiful, to the point that it is too pretty to put tools in.

I am with FJPetruso and put your tools in a crate and give this chest to your wife.

Great job! I'm such a sucker for these posts with toolboxes/chests, the various designs, materials, and joinery used in their construction, tops the list of my favorites. I feel a toolbox or bench should be everyones first "real" project, you took no short cuts and were quite ambitious. Thats a real testament to character. Keep it up, I look forward to viewing more projects.

Is there some type of spring loaded or push action mechanism to open the drawers?

Gotta make one some day. It's on the list for sure. Like the table it sits on as well. Looks teak, perhaps?

Your first project is too good to call it first. Pl do a blog on how you did it. It will be an inspiration for many. Thanks for posting it.
