Tool Chest-Skirt Installed & Stained

I finally got around to working on the skirt for the chest…decided against dovetails and went with mitres since I don’t want to copy the ATC to the letter. My plan is to find some decorative aged brass corner straps to protect the corners of the skirt anyway, so the mitres shouldn’t be an issue. I wanted a dark, aged finish, and after a bit of experimenting i came up with a game plan…here is the result. Camera flash washed it out a bit…it’s quite a bit darker than in the picture. I really globbed the stain into the corners to try and give it an aged look and a bit of buildup.


Not sure yet what the topcoat will be, either wipe-on poly or an oil finish. Next: Fitting out the interior.
