Wow, I was just looking at that chest design in “Making Authentic Shaker Furniture” by John Shea on page 176 and making preliminary plans. If that isn’t a sign to go ahead and make the chest I don’t know what is.

Great job! You have inspired me to move forward with my plans.

Great construction, and your finish sure makes the grain pop. I like it, and need (but don’t have the room for) to build one.

Hey Jim….nice project, I’m sure the pictures don’t do it justice. More information; hand or machine cut dovetails? Dovetailed drawers? Hard or soft Maple? Finish? Are you interested in Shaker or just Early American style? Have a next project lined up? I see you are new here….WELCOME!!!

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback and welcome messages.
This is the first time i dovetailed anything wider than a 7” drawer. The dovetails are machine cut pins and they were transfered to the front and back and I cut the tails by hand. I did it this way because i wanted a hand cut look and needed the project to move a little quicker across my bench. the wood is soft maple.Analine dye (water based) amber shelac, several layers but never counted the number. Shaker is my prefrence of furniture styles. My next project is probally going to be a set of wing back chairs with carved feet.
