Description: For using the whole amount of storing space im my BILLY, I bought a MACKIS minichest. After a littly while, I thought it was too boring, even to live behind closed doors and so I used my soldering iron to apply patterns on it.
I sized the chests and planned the patterns on my PC. I used a collection of Photoshop Pencils and a nice artwork collection of a german comic artist to create the design for the chests.
I printed the template and copied it to the chest by using tracing paper and pencil.
I switched on my soldering iron and traced the pattern into the wood. (Because of the heavy work for your eyes, consider 2 to 3 evenings for finishing that work.)
