A Vintage metal tool cabinet dating from early last century.
Cleaned, stripped naked and lightly polished and sealed with Jade oil.
The cabinet features two separate enclosures with a pair of gate opening doors which have wonderful solid brass knobs that have undergone three stages of polishing to remove a century of grime to reveal their true beauty.

The cabinet has then been sympathetically married to a pair of mid 20th century school laboratory stools
that were cut and then welded together and then painted in a deep pastel blue to
make a double width base for the cabinet to be mounted on.
A very practical and unique custom piece worthy of taking pride of place in any ones home or office as a drinks cabinet, or storage piece.

Height 950 mm
Width 900 mm
Depth 470 mm

    Very nice and more or less as expected. I like the way it can be erected flat or at a slope and is substantial enough for sustained work - I am using it as a computer desk for a laptop which works perfectly. The ironwork - side bands and hinges - is somewhat battered and rusty but I intend to give each side a quick coat of hammerite when the tin is next out.
