Those wartime 41-C-15's would've been a huge steal for $50, Farrell, but your later cabinet is really nice, too.

Hi All
Guys Thanks again I had not seen this one!

Don, it was great this cabinet was just a few miles away it was home with in an hour after the seller got to his shop.

Phil, I am sure you will have your second cabinet real soon.

Jason, they will show up when you least expect it.

It turns out the seller has a wood shop and restores furniture as well. A while back he had another cabinet that was a teal color I asked him about that cabinet he said that one went to England. He said Dave if you don't mind can I ask you what you are going to use it for ? I told him about the other cabinet I had at home and what I would be using it for. He said Dave if you ever decide to sell it let me know I will buy it back.

Thanks
Dave

That does look a cool bench , too big for my garage !

I found four of the standard chests at an antique fair from two different vendors last week.
Two were in reasonable condition but had been repainted blue and the others were trashed with replaced drawers and others not opening.
They were all £250 each which i felt was way over the top, but if it was my first one I might of been willing to pay for one of the Blue ones.

What is the ad from, Kirk? Not CL. I don't recognize it. Please post the actual link (unless you are going to buy it and you are protecting the source).
Looks like Facebook Marketplace, Wing.
