Default Spool cabinet for wife's christmas present

I thought that I would share a photo of the spool cabinet that I completed for my wife's Christmas present. It is six drawers with plate glass windows. The windows are personalized to her pre-retirement business venture of 25+ years. Each drawer interior is configured in different ways for spools and other items. The cabinet is hard maple with birdseye panels on three sides. The cabinet sits on a special carriage with wheels. The overall height is 42". Drawers are dovetailed. The rope twist half spirals were produced on a vintage Craftsman router crafter. The hard maple that I used on the three sides is left over from a kitchen re-flooring done 5 years ago.

I am uncertain that the photo is attached to the post that I just made. If it is not there, can somebody tell me how to put it there now?

Your photo didn't load. Click on "New Reply" button, then "Manage Attachments" at the bottom of the screen. Click on "Choose File". Then find your photo on your computer and click "open" Either make that window full-size or pull the bar at the bottom so the right side of the window is visible. Click on "Upload". Then close the window and click "Submit Reply".

You get a lot of husband points for a project like that, Only problem is those points expire fast some times. Nice project.

Why that's no spool cabinet, That's a museum piece! Beautifully done. Should help to justify the tools.
