Wanted to build something small with some pine I had sitting around in the shop. Figured I could use a nice small place to put my keys and wallet etc at the end of the day.

All pine except for the drawer bottoms which are leftover cherry ply. Finished with green milk paint and wax. Pulls extras I had ordered when I built my Anarchist’s Tool Chest.

Will probably build another out of walnut and curly maple so this was a good prototype!

This looks very nice and practical. You did a fine job on it.

Thanks the the comments! It was a quick fun project and will likely make another for the shop to store my chisels and carving tools.
