Walnut Advent calendar. 25 drawers each to be opened on the first 25 days of December with the last on Christmas day. I made this for my nephew in Arkansas. I had the numbers laser burned in each drawer.

Hmm, how about the open space behind the drawers? Are you using it at all? That walnut is beautiful :)

Great Job! I’m sure your nephew will enjoy it. I’ve built a very similar advent calendar for my girls. They love it. It has quickly become one of our favorite Christmas traditions. I originally found this site while researching ideas for my advent calendar.

Here is a link to my version if you care to take a look. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/10342

This is a very creative piece and you did a fine job on it. In spite of it’s special intended use it would also make a wonderful general storage cabinet for small parts and fasteners.
