Storage Drawers for Workshop, above the stairs

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Storage Drawers for Workshop, above the stairsMore space is what is required in my ever shrinking workshop, this cabinet of very standard 1/2 ply construction. I also used it as an experiment for exposed dowels, which I learnt a lot about.The cabinet sits against the ceiling in my workshop and is just out of the way of head height walking space.
The drawers needed to be easily removable so as they could sit on the bench whilst being used. The handles had to be easily gripable to be able to pull a heavy drawer out and get it on the bench without dropping it down the stair well.The only real special thing here is in actual fact the hand made handles from Beech dowel and Mahogany ends.
Anyways I was thrilled how they turned out , I've added a picture of the jig I made. I used it to get holes with no tear out in the mahogany ends which house the dowel. I then used a fine tooth back saw to rip each small end by hand and sand them up. Honestly, I don,t know how you model makers do it. Working with little pieces of lumber is frustrating for me. (((which reminds me , I,ve got to get the rifle finished at some point.)))Thanks for reading ,
Regards
AnthonyThese two pics are of the jig required to get no tear out in the half inch holes of the handle ends.

A toy Motorhome for my grandsonYears ago when I was a Park Ranger I built this 1” scale model of my Bounder 37' Motorhome for my grandson.I built it heavy duty so he could ride on it and it was fully furnished with a flip top so he could play with the inside. This was my first large scale model.

Bandsaw Box from Cutoffs of the Last One

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Bandsaw Box from Cutoffs of the Last OneIf you scroll a couple projects back you can see where this piece came from on that last bandsaw box. I knew when I cut that piece off it was big enough for another box so I saved it and finally got around to making it a couple months ago. Just now getting around to sharing it here.
Again, it's Myrtle wood, Purple Heart and Yellow Heart. I have a ton of this beautiful Myrtle wood and it has gorgeous color and lots of figure, spalting,etc. I always flock both inside the drawer(s) and the drawer cavity as I did here as well.
I decided to accent and emphasize the insert cut by not duplicating the curve on the other side and by highlighting the same curve in the drawer pull. Finished with Watco Danish Oil and called it done.
Any questions/comments are always welcome.
Thanks for taking a peek.
