Realized I haven’t posted projects in a while.

This one is a bridal chest. African mahogany with quilted maple veneered panels. The plans came from one of Bob Lang’s arts and crafts furniture books (which I believe was a compilation of Pop Wood articles.)

Shellac finish, no stain or dye.

John – This is priceless! I love the contrast. Who’s the bride?

Very nice looking chest—I’m sure the new bride will be just thrilled with it!
