My good friend for the past 20 yrs or so issued a challenge last year. We were to build each other simple one drawer/one door wall cabinets. Roughly the same dimensions, about 14×22 or so. We had to use hand tools only, and we both saw this as a self-imposed master class. I had to pause half-way through to build a nicholson style bench and even made a tiny hand powered lathe for the knobs. My friend chose a Mission inspired design, while I went for more of a shaker style. His was walnut and cherry, while I went with flamed birch, cherry and birdseye maple on the inside of the drawer. After a year and a half I finally made the trek from New England to South Carolina for the exchange. Apologies for poor photo lighting. The pic with them side by side is the truest color wise.
