This chest was commissioned by my next door neighbors who recently had a little girl. I think it turned out ok.

Beautiful job. I’m sure both the little lady and the proud parents will appreciate your craftmanship for years to come.

Adam, nice job on the dovetails. That looks like oak. Where did you get boards in that width?

I cut all my dovetails by hand. Although I do sometimes use a table saw to help with cutting the tails.

That’s a real beauty and very well done.
