Large Shaker Chimney Cabinet
This large chimney cupboard is made from pine from the big orange box store. This is based on a 2013 article by Bob Rozaieski in Popular Woodworking Magazine. It's painted with milk paint Barn Red over Pitch Black with shellac and wax finish. It's almost too nice to live in my basement workshop. This is a mostly hand tool project with the exception of initial dimensioning. Check out my other work on my Instagram page at doug.h.h
