Following Ben's small workshop project I decided it was time to house my chisels in a proper manner.
This small cabinet was the result.

Hi Guys
 
Thanks for the compliments
 
Derek,
Each drawer holds 16 chisels and I wish I had enough for a drawer-a-day I do have enogh for 3 drawers, 1/2 normal size and 1/2 small (woodblock) size. Need space for expansion  when finances allow .

The wood is Meranti - one of many related species of Far Eastern woods. This was rather soft, more like Lime, and rather fibrous. The harder grades are used extensively for joinery and outside woodwork. Takes quite a nice finish though, the colour is slightly more pink than the photo shows.

Took a nice finish - 4 coats suede floor varnish to protect it in the workroom. The dovetails are machine made. I dont have the skill or patience to hand cut that many lapped dt's
