Wormy Chestnut Drill Bit Cabinet

Have been meaning to build this project for a long time…beats having the bits laying loose in a drawer. I love the look of wormy chestnut, but it sure is difficult to work with; just wants to splinter and splinter and splinter….Wanted to do something a bit different for the interior; back is t+g pine with milk paint. Now have an excuse to buy some more bits to fill up the interior…
Finished with two coats of “Maloof” finish ie. 1/3 BLO, 1/3 turpentine and 1/3 poly.

Nice cabinet. Love the contrasting color from the finish to the milk paint. Have you given any thought to adding shelves on the blue side or will you add more bit storage there too?
Great job again!

Pretty darn neat. Now I am gonna want to do that too, except I wouldn’t have the pretty wood you have.

Nicely done—agree it sure “beats having the bits laying loose in a drawer” or as in my case some just laying loose on the bench beside my drill press. Congratulations on getting the job done.

well done. I like the chestnut. I never thought of it as that splintery though. But then, I’ve worked a lot with wenge.

Thanks guys; it’s fun to build shop projects. I like using “nice” wood for it, I figure if I’m going to spend more time in my shop than in the house I might as well have nice cabinets to stare at.

Great cabinet man! I also like the idea of making nice stuff for the shop.
