Very nice. I like the number of drawers and display unit on top. Some reason I think of a library catalog desk when I see it.

Beautifully done. How long have you been a collector of arrow heads?

You’re showing a timeline graduation from some simple functional furniture into some show pieces. All have been very nicely built and tasteful. This is really an exceptional piece. Can you comment on it’s construction, how the drawers are guided? Any comments on the joinery and drawer construction?

This piece is downright beautiful. Small drawers lining up so pretty ain’t easy.

This is fantastic. Beautiful, functional, and a nice (dust free) place to show off art or in this case, artifacts. I could totally see this in my study (if I had one) I used to collect fossils, rocks and minerals – all sorts or “earth sciencey” things when I was a kid.

Nice work, I’ve been granted a fine collection of arrowheads and such, collected by my father and grandfather through the years. Yours is an attractive solution for convenient storage.
