Bought a sweet Gerstner Model 52 Machinist Chest yesterday for $85 bucks!  Looked like it was in good shape minus the broken case cover.  Thought I’d have to replace the felt lining, but upon a closer look, what I thought was the bottom of the drawers was actually cardboard, so the felt is immaculate.  And the vintage fluorescent ladies in the top were a bonus.  Already cut down some oak to fix the cover.  Currently testing some stains and finishes to see how close I can match it.  This should be almost perfect when its finished.  I’ve ALWAYS wanted one of these.  What a find!
