Sewing chest

I finally finished my last project, this sewing chest.
It is made from american white oak and black walnut.
Finished with shellac and my own carnauba and bees wax blend.
65 x 45 x 30 cm.

Ebonised oak pulls.

I like to combine straight lines and subtle curves.

Dovetails, as always!

I love this Stanley router plane, It is 115 years old and still does a cracking job.

The carcass ready for assembly.

Dovetailed little drawers.

Shaping the legs with an HNT Gordon spokeshave, a great tool!

My tool cabinet

I finally made my tool cabinet! 
I was eager to have a proper place to store my beloved tools. 

It is made from american white oak an the panels are from a nicely figured piece of mongoy (also known as owengkol). It is finished with 5 coats of shellac and my own carnauba-bees wax blend.

Some sketch up design prior to the buid. 
The stand remains to be made!

Pin recesses prevent the shelves and racks from falling accidentally.

Some accurate dovetailing.

Fine hand made joinery of the doors. 

Chisel racks ready to install.
