Awesome! Looks like you’re ready to stand next to Roy Underhill at the traffic light. I love that old-timey finish. A place for everything and everything in its place. Great work.

The slots and compartments are what set this on a shelf above the rest. Then the finishing and the beauty of the pieces take it up another notch. I read a couple of your blog posts but now I will have to go through the whole series. I like it very much.
