« Part 3: Update Part 4 of Constructing a North Bennet street school tool box series no next part

While im busting tail trying to get my second tool box done in time for school I am still taking photos for you all.
I did something interesting with one of the drawers. I am stuck on two design ideas lately. I am obsessed with federal furniture and I find rows of double drawers that have one really fancy face and one plain face awesome looking. I like the contrast of them and I like the asymmetry, Here is the result. Not all of you will like this I am sure. If its not your taste, no need to hate. If you like it feel free to comment.

Awesome look for both drawers but the asymmetry just doesn’t do it for me. Two matched drawers from the Federal period would look great!

Not my taste either with the asymmetrical drawers. Both drawers look great. I think your craftsmanship looks great and so does the box. Keep up the great work!
