« Part 4: Remember the cabinet?? Part 5 of Apothecary Cabinet.. series no next part

I was galvanised to make the most of the day… hence the sanding of drawers…

I did this in between glueing up blanks for the Sushi Board Series….entertaining visitors to the workshop….and enjoying some inspiration… after the job was done of course…

So over a period of a few hours, I completed the sanding of the Drawers for the Apothecary Cabinet… which has been dragging its heels….now all I have make is the Carcass in which the drawers will reside…

Note …. I am wearing hearing protection… you may want to adjust your volume…

Love the sound effects (and the hearing protection!). And the drawers look pretty good too. Thanks Larry.

Congratulations Larry, I’ll bet you’re glad those are done…
Are you going to make your own drawer pulls?
That would keep you busy for a bit… :)

Coming along fine Larry.

At this pace by the time you finish this cabinet, it will be already an antique !!

At least you still have hair to cut.

Too funny mate! Love the start with the bottle of brew…. LOL Really found it interesting using your sanding disc cleaner that the platstic wrapper was still on. I use my cleaner all the time. Thats alot of boxes you have made.
Good job!
