Two snapshots is all there is for this entry. Pulled the cabinet out of its cubby below the workbench and set it on top for an applied finish.
I’ve thought for awhile there were some proud dovetail joints needing some final attention, but decided all was good. Finish consisted of a single coat of boiled linseed oil, which I will reapply this fall when my entire bench is due for a refresher coat of Watco’s. Started wiping the first drawer, big smile on my face. I was amazed / truly didn’t realize the impact it would have on the now-very-familiar look of this old walnut…
Is it too good for shop furniture? Nah!! Under the bench it goes!
