Thanks all – speaking of hardware – I have a black hasp for the top on back order. Don’t know when I’ll get it

Something like that would certainly motivate me to stay organized, which is the whole point, I guess. Very well done.

Nice work. Very clean…

Does the middle tray come out?

Very nice finish, I love shellac too.

Thanks all -

WoodchuckerNJ – no the middle tray doesn’t come out. It’s under the glides for the top tray that run the length of the chest. I thought about stepping down the tray sizes so that lower one could come out, but I decided to make the trays the same size. So far everything I have to put in the bottom fits ok by removing the top tray and sliding the lower one over. I can unscrew the tray glides to remove it if I need to to, and the bottom dividers are removable in case I want to change things a little.
