Hard to believe this is 5 years old already, made back in the days of just using a circular saw and some sawhorses. It’s pretty primitive woodworking, but that was intentional given the style. It’s all butt joints, glued and secured with cut nails. The outside finish is red milk paint and clear poly. Inside finish is blonde shellac. The hardware is from Acorn ordered through Van Dykes. The last picture is my makers mark, I have a cheapo stamp set – like 8 bucks from Harbor Freight.

This is nice, you know this style of cabinet construction is comming into style, not that it ever went out. I’ve been reading a lot of buzz in the hand tool world bout “nailed furniture”. Christopher Schwarz had written about it and there was some other article about it about to come out on Popular woorking.

I got to try something like this one of these days.

Very nice! :) When I build primitive stuff I take a sander to all that pretty paint and then grubby it up with stain. Yours looks so nice and clean! :) I love the red!
