My youngest grand daughter wanted a chest for at the foot of her bed. Asked for it for 2 years. I told her to come out and go through my mags to find one she liked. She never did so, I made this for her for Christmas because “I” wanted to make it. I also told her it was tuff if she didn’t like it. lol I think she did. :^)

You did some fine work there Dan. I like everything about it, and especially the way you did the feet. I’m pretty sure your daughter must be over the moon with this chest!

It’s another Glen Huey plan. This one out of Popular Woodworking.
I thought that I would never finish the dovetails (yes, I hand cut them all, even the feet).
