Drawer fronts are Birdseye maple. Drawer pulls are custom walnut pulls. I popped the figure with dye then a coat of shellac and then general finishes high performance semi gloss. Drawer sides are mahogany. I also designed a custom mobile base and made a video about it. https://youtu.be/NAvl3eZOC_4

Wow. That is a pretty nice piece of fine furniture for use in the shop! Looks great plus with all the drawers appears to be very functional.

Nice work, nothing like having that in your shop as a quiet statement “this is what I can do.”

Just whack it with a hammer to get that first ding out of the way.
I’d say it’s a waste to use that nice of material to make a shop piece, but if you can do it, why not.
Nicely done my friend.

amazing. I think the display of your skill in your shop makes perfect sense, anyone seeing that will recognize the quality of the craftsman.

Is that little thing sticking out of the bottom the mobile base actuator?

Wow, ditto to all the comments above. I’d hate to use it, too pretty!!
