This is an oldie that I thought I’d share while I’m rebuilding my shop after moving. I made this about 9 years ago when I had not more than a cheap Craftsman [death machine] contractors table saw and a belt sander. All the wood (maple?) was planed (not sure you can really call it that…) from rough cut lumber with the belt sander. Miter joints on the [hardly square] box and dowel joinery on the doors. First and last time on the dowels… The panels were made of tin and the pictures were literally created with the blood of my fingers as I hammered the holes using small nails and a hammer. I don’t recommend that technique… I cringe to look at the thing now knowing how much better it would turn out using the tools I have now but overall it turned out alright to the unknowing eye. I think it’s a nice modern twist on the oldie style. Sorry for the dirty pics. I didn’t realize the thing was so dirty until I pulled the pics off the camera.
