    finished cleaning up my fathers wooden tool chest

    thanks to everyone for your suggestions on how to go about this. Used a green scrubber with murphy's oil soap. Let coffee sit in for about 3 weeks and then sprayed it with shellac.

    My Father built this in high school I am guessing 1938. he used it when he was starting out as a machinist. Brian

    That came out well Brian. And heirloom items like this are always a treat to have and use. Enjoy!
