Alright. Stripped, sanded(120, 240, then 320), and first coat of special walnut stain. It is a similar color to English Walnut stain.

Weather is crap(humid out), so the photos don't do it justice. I will coat it with satin enamel when it is cured and the weather dries up. I was able to save the manufacturer logo and letter codes the watchmaker put in the recesses. :)

What do y'all think? One more coat of stain or leave it be?

Sweet cabinet !

If it was me I would go a bit darker with the stain and use shellac to try and match the old finish better than poly.

Thank you for the input, Steve! :cheers:
It has lightened up a bit in the last couple of hours, so it will definitely need one more stain treatment.

Like I said above, it'll have to have one more staining, because it soaked it up better than I had anticipated. I am digging the tones and grain of the wood though. :)

The weather is just awful today, so I'm going to work on it tomorrow or whenever it clears up. Some serious English weather today. :ahhh

My best guess is 80 or so 4" tools. I wish the drawers were 8"+ deep, but they are only 6" deep, so diagonal storage will have to do.

I've got 150 MTs in a cheap chest of drawers, so this chest should take a big load off of it. The cheap chest already has sagging drawer bottoms. The watchmaker chest has really strong drawer bottoms.
I wish the lady had more than the one chest, as I'd love to get all 280 tools tucked away neatly in watchmaker chests.

Yeah. It seems to have crept up on me. I had been assuming the number was around 200. I did a rough count and it was right at 280. :facepalm:

The cabinet I've been working on is finished and I had poorly estimated the number of tools it would house. I figured about 80 multitools, but after getting a game plan on using the small cabinet, it holds 146 multitools right now and could hold 6-8 more mid-sized tools. The insides of the drawers are 7-3/4" deep and 22" wide. Not the best for MTs, but pretty good. :)
Photos:
When I bought it.

After stripping, sanding, and first stain.

After 4 coats of stain and three clear coats.


Here are the drawers loaded up. The blue towels will be replaced with orange felt as soon as it comes in from amazon and I can use the guillotine to cut it to size for the new drawer liners. None of the drawers have any sagging. :woohoo:







It is roughly half of my modest(relatively of course) MT collection in that little cabinet. The chest of drawers I had them in had sagging drawers and was inefficient for MT storage. :ahhh

I wish I could get five more of the watchmaker chests. :)

Edit: Two Gerbers wouldn't fit the drawer depth. The Radius and Recoil. They are quite thick MTs. And the thickness of the springs to tools won't let it hold SAKs either. So, those will need a different place to go. The large 4' chest of drawers will be used for SAKs, cheapies, oddities, sheaths, flashlights, and large knives.

I'm so bad about never finishing projects at the house, so this was a rare win and maybe motivation to get some more looming projects completed. :)

The only thing bugging me is the Radius and Recoil not being with the rest of the Gerbers. The LM MUT went in with the clip removed. Just need to quite fretting over it for now. :ahhh
