This is my cabinet maker’s tool chest. It is made out of cherry with cherry veneers. I did they lid by a method I believe is called marquetry. There are many good videos of the technique on youtube.

Andre is correct. More pictures including drawers, etc would be wonderful. As it is, this is a fine example of a cabinet maker’s tool chest. A physical resume for a cabinet maker.

That is sweet. I’m with everybody else more pictures. I really like the stencils on the underside of the lid. How did you do them?

Hard to get a sense of scale, interested to see what can fit in that chest.
