That’s nice. Looks like it would be good for holding different grits of sandpaper.

Very nice Bill. What are the dimensions and particularly how deep are the drawers?

Great job! Those small drawers can be a real challenge.

Welcome to LumberJocks.
Nice project, I collect pins and have often thought about making something similiar with a glass top in order to rotate the drawers around to display different pins.
Would be interested ot know the dimensions of yours as well.

Great job, Bill. Now I want one – I can think of many uses for such a drawer cabinet. Is this a guy thing – that we all seem to love boxes and drawers where we can stuff things?

This is a very interesting cabinet. The paduk handles provide a nice contrast to the butternut.

That is a very nice box of drawers, I made something of the sort and use it for small tools and delicate instruments. The better the name, the higher the importance, ( carving tool cabinet / calibration tool chest / precision tool box)

Batteries! That looks like a fine piece of furnture. I would be keeping this in the living room with silver ware, CD rack, Pictures by the year, collectable pins. Special coins, Rings, monthly receipts for Taxes, I have a pen feish and this woud be great as well, but not batteries. Its toooo gooood for that.
Nice project great craftmenship. Very creativity as well. One of a kind, it will be around for a long time.

Good looking storage piece. Like Charlie said those small drawers are a challenge.
