Built this for my wife in 2014. I used walnut and tiger maple. The tiger maple was dyed and coated the whole thing in clear poly. All of the drawers and cabinets are flocked in black. Which wouldn’t have been too bad, but applying glue to all the compartments in the drawers was a nightmare (tedious). A lot of flocking work!

The first photo makes the wood look like basket material, beautiful combination of wood and style!

I’m sure you are aware that if you make a box that big, your wife will eventually fill it 8^)

Beautiful work John. The wood selection, inlay work and joinery all look amazing. Isn’t it satisfying when you can make a project that gets daily use and is appreciated by a loved one?

John, this looks fantastic. I’ve been looking for something like this for a toolbox I want to make for my daughter’s first apartment.

Did you build this from plans or did you design it yourself?
If so, can you tell me where I can get the plans?

Also, can you give the dimensions?

Thanks

Thanks Kevin!

I designed it myself with SketchUp. Unfortunately, I can’t find the plans anywhere.

Approximate dimensions are 48” tall x 18” wide x 12” deep. If you want more precise measurements, just let me know and I can get the tape measure out and get back to you.

Have your say...
