This cabinet was made to fit under my workbench. It was build using plans from PlansNOW. Case is made with birch plywood trimmed in walnut. Drawers and door are oak. The plans called for spines to be used (which I did) to attached to walnut trim. This took quite a bit of work and I don’t think was necessary. I would suggest simply gluing and pin nailing the trim. Finished with Shellac and Poly.

I like this. Very nicely done. I box joint on the drawers adds a great deal of interest to the front.

Did you make the handles?

-- Tim, trying to come up with something cool to say here!

Thanks much. Tim, I didn’t make the handles. I bought the large one at Home Depot and had to order the smaller size one’s for the drawers from Woodworkers Supply.
