This is an antique carpenters tool chest with four pull out shelves and dove-tailed corners. We acquired it from a woodworker who had bought it for the tools and had no use for the tool chest.
We wanted to reveal the woodgrain, so we stripped off the old paint and applied a light stain. Then we finished with a coat of Danish oil on the inside and a clear satin spar urethane by Helmsman on the outside.
The tool chest now sits in our living room as an end table.
