Beautiful chest, Matthew. I love everything about it, especially the marquetry and bracket feet. I would like to see additional pics of the top and overall chest , if possible.

Outstanding craftsmanship, a very beautiful chest. The inlay and dovetails are great, all tight fits, no gaps, excellent!
