Blimey, that turned out all right, innit? :thumbsup: I'm not surprised he used a fair amount of oak for the trays - there's a lot of timber required for that sort of thing.

That's a great looking cabinet, perfect for storing your finds and I'm loving the top drawer, it's going to look good full of silver hammered coins. loving your videos on youtube as well. Well done. :thumbsup:

Really enjoyed watching that Alex, albeit on subtitles due to having a mute PC.
Have seen the objects the other Alex works on for years, really talented chap.
Is this due to be a segment on the next series of Salvage Hunters The Restorers ?
All the restorers on that series are extremely talented.
The request for dated old wood rang a bell.
Thirty five years ago, did deliveries for an independent furniture store. Some of the old furniture taken away went to the Auction for a few quid but when i think about the old panels, drawers etc that were dumped. Must add it was all 20th Century not Georgian, Victorian etc. All that 50`s 60`s 70`s furniture is now in vogue.
Hindsight is a strange thing.
Anyway best of luck with your detecting and finding objects for your cabinet.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Thanks Dave, much appreciated - yes they are very good restorers and Alex is a really nice bloke too - I don't think it will become a segment but we have a project or two in mind! And it is anyones guess why things go in and out of fashion ... hope all well!

I dread to think how much that cost but whatever it was you have a lovely cabinet at the end of it which I’m sure you’ll treasure forever. Bet it was fun hoovering it out and making it perfect plus you’ll have that lovely smell of wax in your car for awhile. Love that smell :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

That cabinet is looking lovely, really nice bit of furniture, I like that the locks are sideways too, gives it character.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.
