March, 2013 – I’m not sure what kind of wood this is. It might be Norfolk Island Pine. We got it from a tree that had been cut down. The first tool I used was a chain saw!

Has multiple coats of water-based poly satin, brushed on. On this one I decided to put holes in the back to push out the drawers, rather than mar the beauty of the front with knobs. The Ajax can shown for scale.

I think you made a wise choice using holes instead of knobs. This look good. Makes the Ajax can look small.
Nice job Art.

Art, that wood is AWESOME.
I love that design, but wondered how the drawers opened until I read the post. Duh!!!
Thanks for showing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I like the holes for opening the drawers. I like this design also.
