Big Drawer project - part 1 End table

The reason I call this the “Big Drawer Project” is because the customer requested 12” deep drawers on all 3 pieces. I don’t think it is logical, but it is what the customer wants.

The drawers on the cabinet are both locked with a single lock. Picture#4 shows the inside of the cabinet. It’s 29” tall, 18” wide and 18” deep. Made of Beetle Kill Pine. The finish is 2 coats of shellac and 5 coats of water based poly.

Thanks for reading, comments are always welcome

Look like very cool filing cabinets. Wouldn’t be surprised if a desk is not next? I’m so glad you are selling, and I’m guessing putting money away for the big shop, although you appear to be doing pretty well.

We are getting flooded everywhere, how about your neck of the woods?

No flooding here. I would prefer to keep it that way.

Love the knots! That top drawer front looks like an impressionist painting. Congratulations on another Top 3, Monte!

Love it! Great work on this piece. It’s great to see so many different forms using the BKP. You do outstanding work.

Certainly impressive colours will they stay or fade?
So I guess this means the workshop is back in full production again?

Good work!!

Ignoring the two drawers at the front it does look a bit like your description
