Again, another gift for my wife that I’ve finally gotten good photos of.

The chest is all in cherry. I aquired a lovely board that had swirled black sap lines in it. I cut the drawer fronts so that the hardware is centered on the swirls. A 12’ by 8” wide board yeilded the five drawer fronts!

The legs are solid to the top of the piece adding strength.

The top section opens to form a small jewelry box.

The second photo was taken shortly after it was made. You can see how rich the cherry has become in 4 years.

Gotta second Thos. Great idea on the hardware placement. What finish did you use?
Thanks for sharing this.

Finish is water based poly sprayed on with a cheap Rockler HVLP system. I like the ease of use of the poly and get good results with it. It is VERY durable.
