Drawer Finger Joint detail


This is a luthier bench I made. I got the plan online somewhere. The 'frame' wood is lyptus - hard as nails and really heavy. The maple cut and glued from 1" thick boards. It's really functional and a great tool to have in the violin shop.

Design or Plan used: Luthier Bench for Sommers Violins

@klroberts: It looks like the Lon Schleining tool cabinet... I was ogling the design earlier today - I expect it will end up in my shop soon... :)
You can find that design here:
