Hi there all of you.
When a very good friend talked me about a project, first I asked for description, second I asked for a picture, then I realized it’s an antique, wow !!! So now is the time you scratch your head,
This is made of knotty pine, finished with a procedure called ’’oxydation ’’ then coated with hybrid oil varnish satin finish.
Handles, antique of course came with the requisition. The cabinet was made to measure, for a restricted place , and since I didn’t have any plan I figured a way to make the drawer and the compartment for paperwork. I already had a hug, but feel free to comment, advices are always welcome.
Cheers to all of you, and keep on making saw dust.

I like it! Particularly love the twist block that holds the door closed. :-) Nice work, the pictures tell the story!

I like the design and the color came out great.
