This is machinist’s tool chest that I made for my oldest son a while back. It is white oak and figured walnut veneer. The mirror frame is pear.

Amazing work. Did you use a set of plans? I have a couple machinist chests, but would like one a little fancier, so may have to copy you somewhat. Could you give us some rough dimensions?
