Made this for the wife. She needed a box for all of her sewing tools. I used a phot I saw on the net for inspiration.

That looks great! How much does it weigh fully loaded?

Really nice box. Can’t hardly detect the drawer pulls…..their grain matches the box and they blend in nicely.

Nice fit and finish. Needs some handles on the sides.

Really nice box… uh, you didn’t scrape that beautiful table top by sitting it there?

Is it made to carry, or sit on a table for storage (quality organization at that)?
Guess the question is whether there is a handle on top… or a flat surface.

Great design, construction, finish. I’m sure the Mrs will get lots of enjoyment from it.

(Dock) Leather handles for the side are on the way.
(Dusty Al) It will not be moved very often she will have it on her stand near her work area.
(Tony) It is a little heavy but not to bad. Should have used more 1/2” not 3/4”.
(dustyal) The beautiful table was spared (shew)
