approx. 1 1/2’ x 2’ chest with sliding and removable tray. Made for a friends wife so she would have a place for her things. I scored 1×12’s to make the plank look and added some tacks for decor. She really likes George Strait so i made his cattle brand to put on the front of it. Enjoyed doing this mainly because it was the first project in my new shop

Interesting. I thought it was wood flooring at first.

I agree with everybody else – great idea on the pattern. Just run it over the table saw or did you use a router?

New shop??? How about a couple of pics?

Really nice job. With her being a fan of George, the plans and design are perfect for a country girl. I know mine would love it.
