Very nice compact size for small spaces. Plenty of storage for tools and materials. Nice construction! Would extend left top piece for c-clamp vises.

On larger items - so far just the Hancock shelves - I ship for free via FedEx ground delivery. Rather than getting involved with shipping fee estimates, I incorporated average cost into the price of these items. This way, people know the price of the item from the start.
Please note, though, that free shipping is in effect for only the continental US. For fees for any other destination, please inquire before ordering.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of the boxes and cases I make are designed to suit a particular piece or pieces of wood. A good example is the three open wooden boxes (1 sold, two still listed) made of ash. Although the wood is the same type and the construction of each box is the same, the dimensions of each box are different. I designed each box to fit the particular piece of wood from which it was made.
Similarly, the two tansu cabinets (both sold) that I had listed on Etsy were designed to show off special pieces of butternut and ash that I had encountered.

The items that I can build to order are the Hancock Shaker shelves, the Shaker candle box in your choice of milk paint color or shellac wash. The same will hold true for fly tying benches and storage cabinets when I get a chance to build and list them (I hope to do so by the end of February.).

In the meantime, thanks to all for your interest in my work.
