Same design as the last but with Curly Maple. Finish is also the same except I put on five coats of Shellac to deepen the color. One photo shows the secert compartment under the till box. The chests are 20” tall x 18” deep x 36” long. This one is for my Daughter.

Very nice construction. I love the blonde interior and the curly wood is done very nicely.

Both of these chests are very nice builds. I love the finish on this one.
