Inside contains shelves and pegboard
Pull-out shelf

This cabinet was an experiment in finishes.  I wanted to try techniques to make a piece of furniture look old. It was designed to give me more enclosed space for tools.   The drawers are self-closing and I added a pull-out shelf for larger items.
