Very nicely done.

Looks like you took some old parts, som ply, and made a work of art. Nice distressing too. Plenty of work in that by itself.

The front is made entirelly out of a sheet of plywood, just used a jigsaw and a router to simulate everything. Nothing opens from the front, just the back.

very cool, love the idea of making the front out of a single sheet of ply. and making it new, i bet you didn’t have to breathe a single micron of lead based paint!

Nice piece. It’s a real eye catcher.

It’s so shabby chic. I like very much the worn out look especially the front part. It’s very creative and appealing. Great job!
