Tool cabinet in ash, with soap finish. Dovetailed case construction, half blind dovetail drawers, turned drawer pulls, decorative kumiko panel with an asanoha pattern. I really tried to have as much straight grain visible as possible on this piece. The drawer fronts are continuous quarter sawn pieces. The back is a glue up of all quartersawn and riftsawn pieces to continue the straight grain look.

Needed two pulls. Turned two sets which are mostly the same but just slightly different in length.
Another shot of pulls.
Turning is fun. I don’t do it often anymore but I do enjoy it.

Completed and finished cabinet. I am still deciding on tool placement so the kumiko is not permanently affixed yet.
