After seeing Bandits till I thought I need one of them! Had a bunch of leftover salvaged Mahogany boards so started to practice on a board which ended up as the inside shelf. Not really completed, intend to make some drawers when I feel like doing some more D.T.s and trying to decide on a finish, thinking maybe just some BLO ? Attached to the wall with a french cleat. Left room for a 24” Pennsylvania hand saw that on it’s way.

This is really beautiful, such craftsmanship for a tool holder. Amazing!

Nicely done. When I see that I think garnet shellac.

Very nice, never would have guessed mahogany until I saw the last two photos, but that’s just based on grain. I’ve got an 8 foot board in my stash but it’s really, really dark.
