workroom wall


I've been building quite a collection of wooden boxes, drawers and cases lately. 


Lots of these came out of skips, including the library filing drawers. This large (60 compartments!) cupboard came from a car boot sale. I've been trying to work out what it was made for. What kind of a collection it housed. I have plans for it, which I'll share here once I get started.

  3. May well be a printers block store.I had similar drawers but without a lid, they would have slotted into a huge, plan chest kind of thing, in the days of hand set printing. Nice find though!
    I used to have one with miniature bist in it, the odd skull I picked up, or a miniature dolls hosue item, gem stone, trinkets etc....but oh my word did it collect the dust lol I should have placed a glass/perspex cover over it!
