Slick This is actually a Timber Framing chisel, masquerading as a Slick. A true Slick has the socket bent just enough to raise the handle from the centerline.
It is made from a 2" framing chisel rescued from the rust heap. The handle is maple with a walnut knob doweled and glued before turning. It is finished with Hut Crystal Clear finish, a combination of shellac and wax.

Oak Chest of Drawers The internal drawer boxes are 1/2" Baltic Birch, including the dado-ed drawer bottoms. Drawers are dovetailed. Dust frames are incorporated into the carcase. Per the owners requirement, it is a 4-drawer chest which appears to have 6 drawers. The top two drawers are really single drawers, with a faux front. Finished with semi-gloss Varathane.
