    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    I think the colors match the site quite well, but was also unsure about the distressing. Would definitely be interested to see some more samples of the different styles of distressing.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    I used milk paint on my Dutch Tool Chest too. I chose the same colors as Chris Schwarz, red base color with black topcoat. I love this chest!!! I work out of it every day and it houses my most frequently used tools perfectly. This chest has survived 2 years of expansion and contraction and the top has not cracked or distorted at all (great historical design). Good luck with your crackle experiments and we are excited to see the end results.

    Peace,
    -Aaron

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    Thanks Aaron, the chest I work out of is of the same design and has held up very well too. I'll be back on this finish this week.
    Bromley, I'll do a few more samples to demo the rub through, and some more crackling.

    So it's been awhile without an update, I've been busy with other projects and I'm happy to get back to this. More to come

    Looking really good Richard. Proud to be a minor part of the tool part of the project.

    And for the record the crakel medium was not good to work with on this project that was abandoned.

    I have a skewed shoulder plane i can donate if needed. It's old and made of wood. That's about all I know about it.
