This project was inspired by an antique craftsman style tool chest from a flea market. Another family member purchased one and I liked it so much that I decided to make one based loosely on the antique. My wife loves antique furniture so it was a fun challenge to make it look old and weather worn. The finish is a little too nice to be terribly convincing but it does look like an old piece that was refinished. It’s made of solid pine and what is not shown is a tray that is used for magazines and remotes. Under the tray we use the storage space for blankets and throws for those cold winter nights. I used two heavy duty spring loaded support brackets and three strap hinges. The rest of the black hardware is mainly for looks. It’s hard to see in the photo but every corner is made using dovetail joints.
Thanks for looking – Herb
