hi l j”s….Ive been busy lately but managed to build this tool chest in my spare time..its mostly mahogany with a little oak and cherry here and there..i finished it with a danish oil and linseed oil mix…ive been wanting one of these for a long time..I had all the wood..but the brass hardware set me back about 80 bucks..still if you,ve ever priced these you know how much they can run..hope you like it…amos

Sweet Looking Tool Chest, Amos!

Is it filled already? If you’re like me- you never have enough storage space!
