This cabinet was made for a watch maker to hold watch crystals and to mount a crystal press. Originally designed for Ribbon Sapele I came across this figured Sapele and decided to go with it. Lock mitered on the top, middle and bottom boards are mortised into the sides, 2 coats of Pre-Cat Lacquer finish to keep it subtle, last pic sides sprayed with mineral spirits to show the grain. 17 drawers sized for watchmaker supplied inserts and all hand fitted to the case.
