My granddaughter’s Christmas present made from a New Yankee Workshop plan (#104). A good time and a real learning experience!

A nice solid chest. Delicate has its place, but nothing beats solid construction when it comes to piece of furniture.

This looks very familiar. Looks like we each did something differently, but each came out with nice results. I like the hardware that prevents the door from opening too far and stressing the piano hinge. I may need to go back and add that. how long did yours take? Mine took over a year (I know, I’m slow). Great work and I like the raised panels.

I like it when pine is being used to make furniture.
