Tool Chest

This tool chest was designed to hold my carving chisels. It is made from South American mahogany with native New Hampshire curly maple drawer sides. The front panel is solid crotch mahogany.
Finish on the mahogany case was potassium dichromate followed by shellac and wax. The front panel was not treated with the dichromate.
Finish on interior was shellac and wax.

Really beautiful. Thanks for mentioning the potassium dichromate, I will have to try it sometime, it really is outstanding how it colors the wood.

Would love to see the details on the drawers more, dividers and such…
