COME AND LOOK AT THESE PICTURES!
The latest images of my amazing custom craft supplies storage unit.

Oh did I tell you?
This is his FIRST EVER ATTEMPT AT MAKING ANYTHING LIKE THIS!?
Can you believe it?
We are ALL in awe of him!
WOW!!!
I AM SO impressed with it!
Really, this is the first time he has made anything like this.
Before the drawers were made-

This is the skeleton of the unit. I just love it. Before he built each individual drawer, he built this, then made each drawer the exact size it needed to be to fit into and onto each track opening. Each drawer is a different size! There are no two alike and although they look identical, they aren't.

This is a close up of the side mouldings that he actually cut out himself from a flat piece of wood!!! His first time using the router!

The columns are his first time turning wood on a lathe!!!

He purchased all of these tools just to work on this piece for me!

This is a topper to the column that was made from wood that was turned on the lathe and embellished with handmade Mexican clay ornamentation that he sculpted freehand. The little sunflower is my favorite!

I am just blown away that it is your friend's first time using alot of the tools he has used to build your storage unit. It's JUST BEAUTIFUL! And, as I have said before, you MAY be able to fit about 1/3 of your supplies in it! LOL Especially the way you keep getting all of these REALLY CHEAP & FREE goodies!
