BRAGGING ON MY HUBBY

My hubby made this for me a couple years ago when I was VERY sick & bedridden. Decided to "brag" on his work and show it off here. It's made of sycamore & coated in tongue oil rather than varnish. I love the low sheen of that finish, though it requires reapplication from time-to-time.
If only I could actually "REMEMBER" in which drawer to find what I want! I've only managed to memorize where to find postage stamps & mail stickers and the doggie brushes without hunting! Oh well ... maybe in another 2 years I'll figure out a couple more item locations without going on a treasure hunt!!!!!

Oh wow! That is like a dream come true!! I always longingly look at those in antique shops! You could make a map-like chart of the drawers and list what is in them and place it in a hidden spot (maybe the first drawer) for a sort of cheat sheet!!
